My Christmas tree

lindaoh_gwDecember 24, 2010

This year I decided to buy all new ornaments in gold color for my tree. My tree top angel no longer works, so I bought a large gold bow for the top.

All the years the kids were at home, I bought each of them a dated Hallmark ornament. I taught preschool for 11 years and accumulated a lot of cute ornaments as gifts. My tree was loaded with all those decorations. This year I didn't feel like opening all the boxes and then having to put them back after the holidays.

How do you decorate for the holidays?

Beautiful tree! We do colored lights, train ornaments, handmade ornaments I've done over the years, colored balls and swarovski stars! Merry Christmas!

Your tree is lovely. It must be fun to have the change.
As I am getting on in years and had accumulated way too many Christmas decorations 2 years ago I decided to have "Christmas In July" and offered more then 1/2 of my decorations to members of my family. I invited them to come together and choose those that would have meaning to them. I chose to keep my Santa collection--I now decorate my tree with only Santa themed orn. and red wooden cranberrys that circle the tree. There are a very few other special items that find their why on but Santa rules. We did buy a new tree this year as I wanted one that was a little smaller and easier to reach.
I find it a big job each year and takes several days both ways but enjoy it so much I still have my tree.
Merry Christmas all.

In my family, it is tinsel vs. no tinsel. The very first tree we ever had as a child had tinsel and so I go the tinsel route but the children go "bare". But all trees are lovely, no matter how they are decorated
