Plaid. It’s a fabric that is universally liked. You would never say it’s controversial, or that people “either love it or hate it.” That’s saved for things like neon colors or zebra print.
It’s actually the opposite. Most people like it, and wear it, but don’t give it much thought beyond that. And though I’m typical that way, I own a few shirts and a scarf or two, at Christmas-time, I absolutely adore it!
There is something about a red plaid, whether it be in clothing or decor, that just screams Christmas to me. And though I did a very “neutral” Christmas in my own decor this year, it still has a special place in my heart this time of year.
So cheers! Here’s to the holidays, drinking egg nog, dressing up for parties, twinkly lights, packages tied up with string, and plaid, in both clothing and holiday decor☺
