Due to DW’s allergies we cannot have a real tree in the house. Those “r-tea-fish-al” trees are almost as bad. So we use a mystery branch that we found on the ground while walking in the woods. We have done similar things in the past including multiple branches and dead trees with no needles.

Those mini “disco balls” catch the light and reflect all over the walls and ceiling.

Now that I have showed you mine . . . show me yours.

My wife is Christmas tree obsessed…

The first picture is the one in the living room, the second picture is the one in the sitting room that the kids get to decorate, my daughter has one in her room, there are two more on the front porch…needless to say…

I grew up in an artificial world with a silver Christmas tree adorned with red glass balls, that spun slowly on a revolving stand, while a rotating color wheel lit up the background. It was cold like the tin foil it was made of and although I loved the season, I always hated that tree. And then, when I met my wife, I swore that we will never have an artificial Christmas tree in our house. It’s been 20 years now. All of our trees have been fresh cut. This one is a Frasier Fir. It’s our favorite type and it smells so good. There’s something about coming home from work to the pine aroma of a fresh tree.

I also built her a window box years ago that she decorates every year after the Begonias have passed.

Happy Holidays to all of you!

I have to agree with Dadoo the smell of a real tree is great and brings back some great memories of my childhood. This is one of those pre-lit trees that are as fake as you can get.
This is my wife’s favorite time of year and I just can’t understand why she dose not like the real tree. If it were up to me the tree would be shedding needles on the floor right now. Happy Holidays to one and all.

Here’s mine

We have ALWAYS had a real tree. We walked the tree farms to find the right tree every year. After my husband died, the cutting became my son’s job and one year it was icy cold – simply ridiculous weather, but that was the day for the tree cutting. He and I braved the weather to cut the tree (my daughter refused to go. Humph.. so what if you are sick?? This is the TREE!!! haha) – anyway we still were very picky about our selection and our hands couldn’t move by the time we got back to our vehicle.
I always thought I was forcing him to be a part of something he could care less about. Now, he is married and refused to have an artificial tree.
Now that the kids are gone (well, daughter came back for the year..) Christmas isn’t quite the same around here and I bought one of those already lit trees. Small enough to fit on a table. I don’t put decorations on it – it’s so beautiful with its lights and I get the same joy from it. It really was the cutting down of the tree with my kids that made it all so special.
