As a palate-cleanser, here are a few pictures from our first "Fishmas" celebration.
We've had Chintzy Blue, our belovedly-tacky Christmas tree, for almost a decade now, but in 2015 we finally decided to use its color to full advantage and adopt an underwater theme for our holiday decor. I handmade the starfish tree topper, which, while thematically appropriate, isn't quite as fun as either the "dead Harry Potter angel" I previously made out of cut paper, or the "Dr. Wily with floating coat action" figurine we used for the first few years.
