I live in one of those households where Christmas decorations go up the day after Thanksgiving, how about you? Even then, it still doesn’t feel like enough time to enjoy all the glittering wreaths, ornaments and lights. Maybe that’s why I’m drawn to this Swedish snowflake lantern so much.
After all, a snowflake is merely wintery, and can go up anytime it starts to either snow or get chilly. (So, in this year’s case, right around Halloween, oy.) It can also stay up long after the tree comes down. Another big selling point for me is that it looks festive and delicate whether it’s turned off or illuminated, so it’s almost like getting two decorations for the price of one! Plus, it would be a perfect pairing with our DIY snowflake curtains. I think I’ll be letting it snow in our place from now until at least February.
