One of the first things Serge told me about himself the night we met was that he’s absolutely insane for Christmas. Like, totally nutso about the entire holiday season.
I daresay he played down his love for the holidays.
His love of all things Christmas is OFF THE CHARTS. He decorates the house each year like someone handed a crack fiend on a four-day bender a bunch of ornaments and lights and said get to it.
This year was no exception. He Clark Griswolded the outside of the house on Thanksgiving and spent the next two weeks decorating the inside as well.
I love it. My mom did the same thing when I was growing up although not quite to the extent that Serge does it. I hope when they’re grown up Violet and Henry remember Christmastime as a wonderland of twinkling lights, holiday music and fun.
I think they will.
Here then is a walk through the Bielanko home at Christmastime. We aren’t shooting for classy, people. Classy is boring. We are shooting for coverage. Lights and decorations whichever way you turn.
