Holiday folding

Hello everyone - I was curious about other origamists folding for the holidays!

What's your favorite model to fold for the holidays?
Do you decorate your home with origami? (Trim the tree with models, like the OrigamiUSA tree in the Museum of Natural History, etc)
Do you keep it for next year or fold/have fun all over again the next year? :)

Attached: a picture of one Christmas where I made a crane and placed inside a plastic ornament and a picture of the Iimori Snowflake (by Melina "Yureiko" Hermsen) - which I am currently slightly obsessed with!

Edit: sharing also this nativity scene I used to decorate my table the first time I lived on my own

Love the crane inside the sphere!

I don't particularly fold holiday models, although I did fold this variation of Christmas Tree by Makoto Yamaguchi and by Rae Cooker in 2016:

I also tend to "wrap" the holiday gifts using origami :).

I have been designing easy Christmas models for an upcoming class for under ten year olds.
I think the angels will be a little beyond their reach, so I am still trying to simplify it down.

I don't normally attempt human like figures and so far I have had very mixed and sometimes utterly bizarre models take shape.

I think it looks beautiful!

I'm interested in your easy models for children; I teach English as a second language to children and often use origami as a group activity. If there's any links of your models you are willing to share, I would like to see if there's something I can do with them :)

I am in the process of creating a tutorial video for the leaf. It is only four steps. I will post the link once I have finished.
