Holidays?!

This will be my first holiday not in a house but my camper. How do you all decorate for the holidays? How do you have a Christmas tree? I realize the tree would need to be outside but any tips?!

Always loved to decorate for the holidays so any help would be great!! Thanks!!

During the Christmas season we always have a small lighted/decorated tree INSIDE our coach.

We love to decorate for Christmas. Solar lights outside, trees in and out (not the real ones). Lots of decorations inside and out. It is a fun time. We have noticed many more RVers are starting to decorate. We have a reserved space under the bed for storage of Christmas items. Skype lets us share Christmas with all our kids, grandkids and greatgrandkids.

I have a 3 or 4 foot artificial tree that I set on my dash. Lots of lights and wreaths, some santas, etc. wherever I can find a spot to put them. My cat does try to play with the tree, but since nothing is breakable, its not a big deal. She gets squirted with water often...... I don't do much outside, but I do make sure the inside is festive.

Do whatever makes you feel "Christmassy". A couple strings of colored LED lights, a few tree decorations hanging from the mirrors, a Santa hat on each of the mirrors.

It is not the decorations it is the spirit. The decorations big or small just tell everyone you have the spirit.

Then it is perfect for LED light strings! We use them on top and underneath- red and green ones. Wreath on the door for sure. Small blow ups outside. We hang swags around inside with Christmas balls on them in lieu of a tree. Christmas pillows on the sofa. I love Christmas.

Command hooks will let you hang almost anything almost anywhere. We leave ours on for re-use but can easily remove and reposition anytime we want.

We rotate between New Years, Easter, Summer, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Different hangings for each of the seasons or holidays along with a Red Hat hanging. Always something up.

In '91 while living in a Toyota Dolphin, the wife and I bought an 18 inch high artificial tree, and tiny decorations and lights. A couple of ceramic Santa's and Manger figurines at it's base. We did the programmable computer controlled mini lights on the awning and a lighted wreath on the hood. Things were tight that year and our Christmas to ourselves was the decorations. That and the next two Christmases were cerebrated in the Dolphin and were among the best we have had together. BTW, after 20 plus years, we still have that little tree and use it every couple of years.
