There's nothing like spending the holidays with your mom, dad and your perennially tipsy uncle Eddie, but you don't need another trip home to explain the person you've become. You've got plenty of insight right in your own home, among those ornaments and tinsel and other festive decorations you put up every year.
Whether you're done decking your halls (in which case you need to whip yourself up a hot toddy and pat yourself on the back) or are satisfied with getting it done some time before Christmas eve, we think there's a lot to be said for your choice of holiday decor. Check out our roundup of the most telling of traditions, below.
