The Great Christmas Clash: A Tale of Two Toppers 🎄

In a holiday season that's supposed to be all about unity and joy, our heroine finds herself in a festive feud over... Christmas decorations. As she sets up her cherished black decorations, her new husband suggests they 'regularize' the decor to reflect their newly blended family. But our determined decorator isn't having it, standing firm on keeping her black angel tree topper and village full of black figurines. Is she being too harsh, or just standing her ground? And what does this mean for their first Christmas together? Let's dive into the internet's top responses to this holiday hullabaloo... 🎅🏾 vs 🎅🏻
