Fireplace Christmas on

This might make me sound like a grumpy old man, but when the hell did it become common practice to have your house resemble the Vegas strip every December? Now I love nearly everything about the holidays but our society’s gaudy obsession of turning our abodes into Wonka-inspired gingerbread houses is getting out of hand.

I might be in the minority, but I think decorating your house at Christmas time is more about the small, natural touches … and less about overwhelming your neighbors with pure voltage and volume. From little Charlie Brown trees to pine cones and poinsettias, these 10 photos provide inspiration for a classic Christmas look.
