O Christmas Tree! - 2013


I have posted this post before -

So just consider it a "re-run" - ;))


I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!

It’s my FAVORITE holiday!!

We put our Christmas tree up a few years ago -

And have never taken it down!!

Seriously!!

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!!

But -

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 -

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
