This one is easy! I have a few, but I'll stick to just a couple.

One: Bubble lights!
Two: Nutcrackers!
These two get combined as I put the entire collection of Nutcrackers on the fireplace mantle, and intersperse a pine garland with the bubble lights!

Three: The antique ornaments I mentioned before. You can see a few of them here:

(Roughly half of these are antiques, with a quarter added when I was a kid, and the rest reproductions I have added over the years.) I am not showing you a snap from this year, as we decided to do a smaller tree on a table on account of the still adolescent (and therefore nuttier than normal) kitty. So only a handful of my ornaments even came out of their boxes this year. :( Nevertheless, here is the tree, if you're wildly curious:

Even here, you can see quite a few of the antiques, and Santa Mouse nestled in the branches!

Things I need to remember:
• Asking for help is not, as it turns out, fatal.
• Laughing is easier than pulling your hair out, and doesn't have the unfortunate side effect of making you look like a plague victim.
• Even the biggest tasks can be defeated if taken a bit at a time.
• I can write a paper the night before it's due, but the results are not all they could be.
• Be thorough, but focused.
• Trust yourself.
• Honesty, always.
