Well, really, I mean, what things are represented (or are actually) on it?

Mine is all Brussels' sprouts. Very xmassy smile

We like melted cheese on top of our Brussels' sprouts. You?

Mine is mostly white sprayed twigs and is a pre lit one I bought from Next about 7 years ago and its still going strong.

My wreath on our front door is holly, pine cones, bits of fir tree, berries and white snow effect

Round here the practice is to take a Xmas wreath to the cemetery to place on loved ones' graves. Does this happen anywhere else?

I have read that there is a shortage of brussels' sprouts this year bags sad

We always used to take a Holly wreath to my father's grave when I was young Katek. He has been dead for over 60 years now. Thank you for reviving the memory.

Mine is the same artificial one from Aldi that I've used for the last two years.

Not made yet, but will be holly and ivy from the garden, along with wired in pine cones.

You will see few wreaths on doors in Scotland we put them on graves . I could not think about one on my door . Our local baby wear shop has realistic baby dolls dressed in baby clothes and wearing wings . They make me shudder every time I pass them . Supposed to be a Christmas window I guess .
