We have one afternoon about three weeks to Christmas that we call "Deck the Stalls" and everyone brings out decorations to put up for our lesson horses. Anything goes as long as it's kept out of reach. That's when thier stockings go up and the students can pack them full of treats between then and Christmas so they can "open thier stockings" on Christmas morning. We don't do a party, but the "Deck the Stalls" usually turns out to be one, lol. Lots of fun and then the barn looks festive all December!
