Once again, the weather is getting colder, the sun is setting sooner, Halloween candy is getting marked down, and that can mean only one thing: Christmas is coming. But before you can open presents beside the tree, you need to put up said tree. Before you can wave to arriving relatives in the driveway through the window, you need to make those windows properly festive. Before you can have carolers on your doorstep, you need a wreath on your door to greet them.
