It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Many articles written by cruising sailors discuss various items they take with them to make the boat seem like home. Since space is an issue, hard choices have to be made. 

We (I) have chosen Christmas ornaments that fit in a small plastic bin -- the size you keep shoes in. Inside are a few shelf ornaments, our stockings, the knit treetop angel, and garland and decorations for the tree. We create a tree on the mast,  by winding garland from table height to the headliner (ceiling to you land lubbers). Then we hang our ornaments from the garland. It works. I've strung red cord between two port light handles and hang Christmas cards from the cord. Christmas has arrived on La Luna. Neighbors who don't shrink wrap have prepared for the Boat parade by stringing lights from bow to stern and up the mast. Our landlord has erected a "tree" of lights at the top of their crane. The marina is ready for the holiday.
