December: Christmas decorations

Posted on by Fay Curtis.

Announcing the new theme for December: Christmas decorations!

We want to collect photos of how people in Bristol are decorating their homes for Christmas this year. Whether you’re putting up a tree, standing glittery reindeer on your mantelpiece or hanging an inflatable Santa from your roof, we want to see! We’d also love to see any other holiday or wintery decorations if you don’t celebrate Christmas.

Please tweet a photo of your decorations at home with the hashtag #BristolAtHome and search Twitter or check back here to see what other people are posting.

To inspire you, here are a few Christmassy items from the collection!

A teddy bear from about 1930, who is on display at M Shed:
