What would the Christmas season be with out my velvet and fur Santa Hat? I wear it everywhere that I can get away with it from the day after Thanksgiving until New Year's Eve! I buy them for every family member when they are about age 5 and then buy new ones as they get older and need larger ones. Finally, when they reach age 25 I give then a really good one so they can carry on the tradition as long as they are willing to.

I don't have any holiday clothing. I do like to wear hats, though.


At the moment my best holiday acessory is a a traditional hat from Finalnd with streamers and embroidery. The body is red felted wool, with four horned corners rather like a jesters hat. I can wear it with a red jacket embroidered with black cord. Looks fab.

People smile when I wear it.

Great fun!

I have lots of Halloween t-shirts, and a couple of Christmas ones (including my "Bah Humbug" shirt). I also have a few festive earrings for Christmas - sparkly snowflakes and silver snowmen. But the cutest thing I saw recently was a light-up necklace that looked like a miniature string of Christmas lights.

I just purchased a little velvet collar with some silk fringe. It's was shown as being holiday apparel, but I'll wear it all winter...It's so pretty and really jazzes up even a simple outfit. It was supposed to be a Christmas present, but I've worn it three times already:-)...I still have the tags so I can pin them back on, put it in a little box and stick it back under the Christmas tree.

I too go for the crazy socks. Red, red scarves and mittens.
I made a skirt that I circles w/holiday rolls of tinsel that I faithfully drag out each year just for fun.
Happy Holidays to all.
