Eclectic Christmas Style
Defining 'your style' is not necessarily a precise art. And this may be because you have eclectic taste. Eclectics happily take inspiration from different sources, combining styles, themes and whatever seems best rather than following one system.
Those of you with an eclectic Christmas style probably have a treasure trove of old decorations you add to each year, perhaps by crafting some new items and by purchasing a few standout extras. It's about doing it your way, not being afraid to experiment and have a little fun.
