I like the sparkle and the color of these decorations. Ours run much more in the red, green, gold vein, with a few rogues of other colors. But none are purple and sparkly.
I used to love the tinsel when I was a kid–not the tinsel itself, those thin bands of plastic with a foil layer somewhere, but the effect of the tinsel, all glittery and unlike the rest of the year. Now I encounter more sparkle more often in every season, which I enjoy.
