at last, here is my list

:my Christmas is just that , Christmasy, I do have a couple Halloweenish ornaments, a spider web, old world style,which is white and silver spider web, and a old world pumpkin,,so along those lines would be good,, I am a ornament junkie,, can not resist a sparky ornament , do mostly "fancy" glass, but sparkly plastic is ok too, put it at the bottom, although my cats leave them alone at this point, I also love, love snowmen,collect any and all, ornaments, knick knacks, etc Santa's, snowflakes, elegantly traditional if that makes sense. Vintage ornaments like from the ,, 40,s and 50s. think shiny brite style,I like Victorian style Christmas, wreaths, wall swags,, basically if it is Chrismas-y I will adore it, Christmas art work,,

Home made/ handmade is awesome, as is thrift store finds
I adore kitties and have four babies...

Halloween : scary, things that go bump in the night type , things to use to animate, witches, ghosts, skeletons, bats, cats etc.

I also love the Wizard of Oz, especially the green witch, in all her forms, would love a Wicked Witch figurine or ornament.

dislikes Halloween, gory , bloody, movies, zombie babys, clowns,

Christmas need to think about, don't have much dislikes for Christmas,,​

Halloween or Christmas, it doesn't matter. I love both (although except for Nightmare Before Christmas, we really don’t overlap them much).

I love Victorian decorations and costuming: jewelry and accessories, anything with colored glass. I like a dark Victorian vibe—candlesticks, books, bottles, picture frames…also, Steampunk! I particularly like long pendant-style necklaces, and hair accessories.

I like Day of the Dead things: sugar skulls, skeleton figures, etc. (I think this is going to be next year's theme.)

Things based on dark literature, Edgar Allan Poe for example, would be cool. I'm an English instructor in real life! Also, ghost stories or ghost hunting type books.

I sort of want an apothecary set. I don't have anywhere to display one, and it doesn't fit in with any of our current décor or themes, but they are so freakin' awesome looking!

Things for my village. I repainted Dollar Store village pieces and am slowly building a Halloween village. I would like accessories like trees, paths, gravestones, etc.

Ok, now the specifics…
For Halloween:

I love all things Disney, specifically Disneyland. Anything Haunted Mansion is awesome (especially involving the wallpaper pattern. Nightmare Before Christmas is always welcome! My favorites are the villains. I love anything Disney Villains. My favorites villains, in order, Malificent, The Chernobog, The Queen of Hearts, the Evil Queen, and Cruella deVille.

Oh, I also love Halloween or any kind of creepy music, especially things that are not that well known (like Monster Mash, Thriller, etc.). I love discovering new music for Halloween.

We're not really that fond of gore or blood. I don't really like the dolls or babies much. Our parties and Halloween celebrations are a bit creepy, but family friendly. Also, we live in the California low desert, so things that are heat sensitive (candles, edible objects) may not work. It's HOT here, but for Christmas it should be ok. I personally am not that fond of cutesy things (except socks--I love Halloween socks for some reason). And I don't really dig zombies or horror movies.

For Christmas:
Penguins, more Disney stuff! Love Christmas stuff with the Fab Five (Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, and Pluto), and the princesses but any Disney character is great. I'm also on board the Frozen train that's rolling through!
Most of the style of Halloween can carry over into Christmas decorations (Victorian, old or antique looking).
I have miniature tree that gets set up randomly, so itty bitty ornaments would be nice. (I got an awesome Halloween tree last year in the Merry Reaper).
Snowglobes (although I would be terrified of shipping) and music boxes.
Mostly indoor decorations for Christmas. We usually run out of time and don’t do much outdoor decorating.
I always love lights, so any kind of lighting is cool.
We also can use fabrics, ribbons, tulle, and all that fun stuff.
I like dramatic Christmas music (Trans Siberian Orchestra style).
I like peppermint candy.
For Christmas, I tend to like colorful (bright, jewel tones) and and I love metallic. Glitter is ok. I like sparkly Christmas.
I don't do much baking, but I do occasionally like to get creative with things like gingerbread men and houses. I'm better at decorating that actually using an oven. I burn everything. :D

I'll probably add more to the list as I think of things.

Thanks in advance!
