ho ho ho!


I am all about the lead up to, looking ahead. I got this wee little living Christmas tree, about the size of my boot, and there is talk of decorating it tonight. I know, seems a bit early, but with an early Thanksgiving, a person is a trifle ahead. We had a little living spruce 2 years ago and I swear it was the luckiest little tree. It thrived at our place for Christmas, and we had the most magical winter then, we really did, and it nearly died in the spring in my parents' house, but we planted it outside at my parents' farm, and by God it is thriving.
So, tree up and decorated early, and then I take it down on Dec. 26.
BTW-yikes! Less than a month till Christmas. Dec. 24th will be me and the missus 15th wedding anniversary!

December 26? Oh no, you have to leave it up until New Year's, at least. Mine goes up this weekend, and will stay until Epiphany (Jan 6). Mind you, mine's also gold wire, so no worry about it surviving. :-)

Let me guess (OK already, I've seen it) no shedding either?

I grew up taking the tree down on New Year's Eve, then I married a Catholic. Jan 6 it is. :-D Our is plastic, though.

Wow! You sure chose a busy time to get married! Do you do each other's stocking or something for a present?!! On the 26th, we have Christmas with my side of the family. We take our tree down on New Year's Day.

yeah it was New Year's Day or short thereafter in our house when growing up. I really like the minimalist view gary.. but then I really love a small tree. Last year Suzette and the kids showed up with a lovely little 4 footer! it was perfect size and smelled heavenly.

You have to make the kids happy.
