There are only 16 more days until Christmas! It is hard to believe but time is closing in on us! How are you doing? Are you done? Nearing done? Haven’t even started? Hopefully you are fully decorated and your tree is up but in case you aren’t there yet there are some great holiday decorations available at Kmart & Sears this season. I took a trip to shop at Kmart and found some items that I “couldn’t” live without. In fact I placed several new ornaments, a snow globe, a 3 piece candle set and a B E L I E V E votive candle set. Everything in my cart was less than $100! Decorating for the holidays is a tradition like none other—from decking the halls to trimming the tree—every family has its own unique way of getting their home ready for the season.
Right now Kmart and Sears is hosting a Best Dressed Home Sweepstakes. They are on a mission to find out how people from across the US decorate for the holidays. So tell us. How do you decorate? I personally have my tree decorated with handmade ornaments and sentimental pieces that we have collected on travel and that were passed down to me. In addition to new ornaments that I pick up while shopping that I like. When it comes to decorating I have nutcrackers, a manger scene and an advent calender. There really isn’t a specific theme to my decor. It is all meaningful to me.
Kmart and Sears recently conducted a survey and found that:
- 1 in 4 Americans will begin to deck the halls one month before the holiday.
- 41 percent of Americans defined their signature design as “classic,” followed by “colorful” (37 percent) and “vintage” (12 percent).
- More than half (58 percent) of participants felt the most essential decoration for the holidays was the Christmas tree
- Nearly 25 percent of Americans choose decorating as their favorite holiday activity, with listening to Christmas music and shopping as other favorites.
To celebrate the uniqueness of this holiday tradition, Sears and Kmart are launching the Best Dressed Home Sweepstakes to capture how you and others across the US are decorating. Between 11/17-12/26 answer the poll questions and upload a photo of your home decked out for the holidays for a chance to win Shop Your Way points. 60 people will instantly win $50 in Shop Your Way points (you can enter daily) and there will be 1 grand prize winner will win 1 million Shop Your Way points! YIKES! How exciting is that!
