The weekend before Thanksgiving, designer Eneia White took to Instagram to unveil a video of her swathing her Queens apartment in over-the-top Christmas decor. “Since I’m not going home for Thanksgiving, I used the final leg of my vacation last week to create a holiday explosion in my apartment,” she explained in the caption. While she may physically be solo this season, White is hardly alone in her newfound attitude towards holiday decorating. In a year that has been tumultuous at best, often difficult and depressing—and at a time when we’re spending more time than ever at home—there might be no better reason to pull out all the stops for end-of-year merriment.
