Christmas on the Coast

On Christmas day Drew and I took a little drive on the back roads near where his parents live. Mainly we wanted to go take pictures of funny Christmas decorations, which there are plenty of in North Carolina (and pretty much any state in the South).  I didn’t see any lit up palm trees, but we did see an inflatable snowman holding a hunting rifle and a Christmas tree made up of Budweiser cans. But right by the beer can tree there was a real one covered with spanish moss, and when we drove down the road a bit we got to see the coast.

    Awww yay you were in NC again! <3 The decorations on the back roads are always my favorite too because they tend to be so random. I can't remember exactly what little town it counts as being in but on the way from New Bern to Greensville there's this house on a double lot that's FULL of Christmas decorations year-round. As in, it's jam-packed full of lights and yard stuff and if I remember correctly there was something up in the trees, too. I think it's still there! We lived in New Bern for two years and it was there the whole time. Every time we would drive by I thought hm. Well. I suppose if I went to all that trouble I wouldn't feel like taking them down either. Ahaha.

    I know I’ve said this numerous times over the years, but I am in LOVE with that little American style of housing – does it have a name? Usually the houses from America we get shown on TV are huge, empty, lacking-in-personality shells; but these are so beautiful. We don’t seem to have an equivalent in England. Every time I see pictures of them it just makes me want to live in one of my own!!
