Chanukah Mantelpiece Designs

Our family made a controversial change from celebrating Christmas to celebrating Chanukah about 12 year ago. To be truthful, I have missed the design joy in decorating a Christmas tree. So I channeled that creativity in a new direction. My home has two mantelpieces, and both are decorated for Chanukah. The front room stays the same to keep family traditions going, but the family room changes depending on my whim!
