This Christmas was extra special because we had a brand new member in the family. Her name is Esther, and she is my brother’s wife.
And even though we were a tad bit late in our Christmas decorations, thanks to Esther, we had lit up our Christmas tree pretty early.
My quest this year was to create small Christmasy corners at several places in my home, just cuz.
Here’s a glimpse of what I, alongwith Esther, accomplished this month. Yay!
This was just outside our office.
And that’s how it looked like at night.
My parents and I have a new dining area upstairs. So I tried to make this small space too a little bit Christmasy. It looked a lot like Christmas.
I wish my parents could see this in person.
The snowy painting did the trick
And then my room and fireplace area, that I usually work hard on every year anyway.
I love decorating the fireplace every year.
And now lets check out the living room corners.
Each corner had a special something.
This beautiful lamp was a wedding gift to Abhishek and Esther.
Our eight-feet tall Christmas tree.
How I have enjoyed painting some of these.
Imagine, we did this brick painting two years ago, and it remains our best decision yet.
This was also a very special space.
Christmas art this year
These are some paintings I made this year for Christmas.
Going slightly overboard with the white christmas here.
This I gifted to a very special family.
This one made specially for the fireplace, but I eventually I gifted it to a very special friend.
Don’t mind this fat pick-up truck, it’s full of Christmas calories.
Red Christmas barn is now my staple.
The bird house was the deal.
It is my dream to celebrate Christmas in a truck amid a thick forest full of pine trees.
This was another interesting Pinterest idea.
Hosting a Christmas art workshop
Do you have a corner or a full room for Christ?
I have said this in my earlier Christmas blog too, reserving a corner for Christmas is not the same as giving your heart to Christ. Knowing Christ personally, accepting him as your saviour, and confessing your sins before Him will give you an everlasting life.
No matter how many corners you keep for Christmas every year, unless you accept Christ, Christmas cannot have a real meaning.
I urge you to think about this today.

Phil, thank you for your continued kindness, your support, and your precious words.
Very beautiful decorations and paintings, Mukti. And without Christ, there never would have been nor can there ever be a Christmas.
Thanks so much. And yeah Christ is above all.
Happy New Year Mukti! Friendly kisses from Auvergne (France)
Happy New Year to you too.
