O Christmas Tree!
I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!
It’s my FAVORITE holiday!!
We put our Christmas tree up a few years ago -
And have never taken it down!!
Our Christmas tree is up year-round -
And I LIKE it that way!!
It all started when we bought a beautiful pre-lit fiber optic Christmas tree -
One year at Walmart
We took it out of the box -
Set it up -
Arranged all of the branches -
And decorated it with all of our ornaments -
The BEST part was -
We didn’t have to mess with the LIGHTS!!
The LIGHTS were already ON the tree!!
When it came time to take the tree down -
We hesitated -
How were we going to get that HUGE Christmas tree -
Back into that little bitty box -
Without breaking some of those beautiful fiber optic lights??
The answer was - we weren’t!!
So - the decision was made -
We weren’t even going to try to get it back in the box -
We were going to just leave it where it was!!
And we did!!
That tree has been up for years -
And will continue to be up for as long as we live in this house.
The only difference between Christmas and the rest of the year -
Is that we turn the lights ON at Christmas.
Besides - it’s in the perfect corner of the living room -
People don’t even notice it when they come to visit -
Until they leave -
As they walk in -
It’s over their left shoulder -
Because the doorway is at an angle - (to the left of the tree) -
And they always head off to the right toward the family room/kitchen
It isn’t until they leave -
And head back to the front door -
That they even see the tree -
And that's when we tell them that it’s up because we couldn’t get it back in the box.
They think we’re kidding -
But we’re not - ;))
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
