The lovely Colleen, over at silverthreading.com created a fun little roundup, which she calls “Christmas Trees Around The World”. http://silverthreading.com/2015/12/06/christmas-trees-around-the-world/
If you’d like to participate, just create a post with the title of Christmas Trees Around The World, upload a pic of your tree, and ping back to her post. Link is above. Make sure to note where you live. Colleen will post the collection on 12/22.
About my tree:
It’s fun, it’s festive, and it screams Christmas! Many prefer dainty, white twinkle-lights that whisper a touch of refinement (most likely in a British accent). I truly do admire a subtly decorated Christmas tree, but it’s just not me. My tree says, “Hey ya’ll, let’s get this party started!” I love colored lights. Are they elegant? Probably not, but they’re just so cheery. Growing up, my family’s Christmas motto was, “If you can still see the branches, there aren’t enough ornaments on the tree!” My tree is real. No knocks on fake trees, but I just love the ceremony of picking one out, and nothing smells better than a Christmas tree!
What’s on my tree?
Starting in 2007, Derek and I have each picked out one ornament per year. Ya know, posterity and such. We make sure to write our name/ year on each ornament.
These are a few of my favorite things…
That’s Derek’s. Just saying!
Silly raccoon , you’re a raccoon , so you don’t need a scarf. I
admire your sense of fashion, and you make my season bright!
That’s my short and sweet Christmas tree post. I hope you’ll all join in, because, well…I’m nosy! Seriously though, it’s been really fun getting glimpses of other’s traditions.
