After 17 years of fulltiming and 17 Christmases living in a motorhome, this will be our first Christmas in our new home. I have to be honest, it feels kind of strange. Not necessarily better or worse, just different. Kind of like learning to flush the toilet with a handle instead of with a foot pedal.

Our friend Jim is going to stay with us until sometime next week, so Terry bought a turkey and some other goodies to cook for our Christmas dinner. My taste buds are already jumping up and down with excitement.

Some people think that just because you become a fulltime RVer or a snowbird you can’t decorate for Christmas. Oh how wrong they are! Here are some pictures we’ve taken over the years at different RV parks where we have been at Christmas time.

As you can see, some folks take a minimalist approach, just putting a couple of Christmas caps over their mirrors, or maybe adding a wreath or a ribbon.

Others take things a tad further and dress up their RV site a little bit to make sure Santa Claus can find them.

And then there are the folks who go all out and put a lot of time and effort (and money) into decorating for the holidays.

However you do it, large or small, or not at all, enjoy yourself and don’t let living in a limited space limit your creativity if you want to express your joy for the holiday season.

  1. Brought a smile to my face. With us, it’s been almost 8 years of fulltiming and it’s about to come to an end. Closing on a house in 5 days in Alabama. And like you, not giving up traveling. Just on a part time basis. Looking forward to next Christmas as we celebrate in our house.

    Wishing you both a Merry Christmas and a great New Year.

  2. Merry Christmas Eve Terry and Nick. Hope you have a wonder Christmas Day. My mouth is watering over Terry’s Christmas dinner too!!!

  3. Merry Christmas Nick, Terry and Jim, sounds like a good one.

  4. As new full-time RV folks, your blog is not only full of wonderful info for us, it’s such an interesting “read” !
    Thanks, Nick !
