When it came to Christmas, I’ve always had a fake tree. My wife always had a real one. When we got married we settled on an artificial tree because it was easier at the time. So now after almost ten years of marriage we have a real one.
I’ll go up into the attic and get our Christmas decorations and start to deck the halls. As holidays go, this has always been my favorite. Not just for the gifts. There’s something about this time of year that brings out the best in people. Something I wish would happen the other 11 months of the year.
This was my moms favorite holiday too. She would start decorating right after thanksgiving and would leave everything up until mid January. She’d bake cookies and listen to her favorite Christmas songs from the ventures christmas album.
I hope everyone is enjoying this time of year. Let loose, have fun, make great memories. I’ll be back soon with a fully decorated tree.
