: : Hi! I'm not native English speaker. I wonder what does the phrase "hanging around the ceiling" means. Can you help me with that?

: Draperies or spider webs might hang around a ceiling, but if you know the meanings of the words in "hanging around the ceiling," you can figure that out. Can you give us more context? How was the phrase used? ~rb

I googled "hanging around the ceiling" and, for the first few pages at least, it is used literally - lights, spiders, holiday decorations, hot air and so on. Pamela
