‘Cause we need a little Christmas right this very minute. Or not. I mean. I’m all for candles in the windows, for hearts flowering with expectant wonder.

So even if you’re not in the mood for cute decorating finds, do enjoy the gift of Mister Rogers Wisdom + 20 Pretty Holiday Things Around $20.

Find Holiday Pretties & Mister Rogers Wisdom Now

My favorite find in the bunch is one discovered a couple of years ago that many of you went nuts for. In fact, I just unpacked mine and placed them on the French antique console table in our entry with simple fall leaves in a vase (see image above).

Sacred Heart Box, The Queen of Crowns

I love that religious pieces like these can be left out all year. Some of you hang them as Christmas tree ornaments, others embellish gifts with them, and I just like them where I can see and enjoy them – they look beautiful incorporated into Christmas tablescapes.

The Reason We Celebrate

Before we gaze upon whimsical trappings or giggle – my heart is turned toward all who may feel an ache now that the airwaves and social media are flooded with mention of the holidays.

Mister Rogers quote Fred Rogers quotes to inspire on Hello Lovely Studio. #misterrogers #fredrogersquotes

Maybe something precious has been lost and you find yourself limping through November and dreading December with a fractured heart. Perhaps a light heart eludes you.

Mister Rogers quote Fred Rogers quotes to inspire on Hello Lovely Studio. #misterrogers #fredrogersquotes

Between what is said and what is heard is a vastly significant territory. Think about modern communication with its texts, social media blasts and written messages. So often they are devoid of tone as the human voice disappears, as more AI voices emerge. Without love and trust in that subtle space, so much may be lost, misheard, or misconstrued.

In Case You’re Over 40 and Have Been Humming It But Forgot the Lyrics…

Haul out the holly;
Put up the tree before my spirit falls again.
Fill up the stocking,
I may be rushing things, but deck the halls again now.
For we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute,
Candles in the window,
Carols at the spinet.
Yes, we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute.
It hasn’t snowed a single flurry,
But Santa, dear, we’re in a hurry;
So climb down the chimney;
Put up the brightest string of lights I’ve ever seen.
Slice up the fruitcake;
It’s time we hung some tinsel on that evergreen bough.
For I’ve grown a little leaner,
Grown a little colder, Grown a little sadder, Grown a little older.
And I need a little angel
Sitting on my shoulder,
Need a little Christmas now.
