Living the minimalist lifestyle has many benefits. There is something to be said for the well-kept, clutter-free and open design of a minimalist household. That being said, when Christmas rolls around and we started decorating, the idea of staying at a minimum is often much less popular. Perhaps the most noteworthy of all of the Christmas decorations is the gigantic tree, and it is almost enough to make a minimalist turn into a hoarder.
Of course, that’s maybe taking things a little bit too far but I’m sure we would all agree that decorating for the holidays does not often have a minimal feel. This year things are getting better, however, because the tiny Christmas tree is making a nostalgic comeback.
