Anyone Else Have the Boat Decorated for Christmas ?

G'day, mates. Just checking to see if anybody else is in the festive season and would like to share. Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year to the CF community. Cheers from down under.

We've not done a thing inside as it's in pieces at the moment. However, we do have LED lights up the forestay, backstay and cap shrouds... plus around the lifelines. She looks very festive. We considered doing the carol ships cruise with some of the powerboats, but it didn't happen. Will post pics when camera comes home from boat (tomorrow)

Have a beautifully decorated 3-1/2ft tree on the lower helm, and the outside is all decorated, in blue, complete with a moving dolphin on our pulpit railing! I too will post pics when we get out in the dinghy to take pics from the waters edge! I decorate to share the holiday spirit and since we don't exchange presents, thats my Christmas!Happy holidays!!!!

Not much in the way of decoration, but no one else here has anything at all.

Some nicely decorated craft here at the marina. With my tight budget I still managed a nice wreath with some ornament balls, 3 red and 3 green, hanging off the bow. Such a fearsome storm came through San Diego this week it blew the red off my balls! They are a cold silver now. Hate when that happens. Cheers
(maybe someone can tell me how to post pics here, took some of my wreath but??)

Did two local light parades this year. We were actually under decorated for the second in comparison to some of the other boats.
