Christmas falls on one of the shortest days of the year. Even though the sun has set, you want your space to be as bright and cozy as possible. Start by stringing lights around the Christmas tree. But if you are a dedicated decorator, you can add bright, merry throw pillows or other colorful décor. Hang stockings by the chimney, and add another log to the fire. Then curl up in a comforter, and read eBay's guide to making your living room merry and bright for more ideas.
