This is my favorite dust collector (as the giver/husband so fondly calls it) and when Thanksmas and Christmas decorating begins, Monkey gets a lovely - St. Lucia inspired - halo of greenery (no candles please). This tiny little ring of plastic and wire is one of my most loved decorations. I know that when monkey gets his halo, it won't be long before friends and family take a moment to relax, eat, and smile.
That sounded corny. All I really care about is the vacation from work and presents.
