guys, I have a confession to make.
I don't have a tree this year.
I just didn't bother buying, putting up, lighting and decking it. yes, my kids help with it, but what really happens is that i have to harangue them to leave their rooms and their online chats or video games or whatever, to help dec the tree. no one sits out in the living room just to admire it. husband complains that it displaces his easy chair. And I end up having to harangue them to help me take it down and put it away. Yes, I love looking at it, smelling it and I don't really mind the work. but this year, I just don't have the energy nor the desire. this is a very, very quiet Christmas.
So, thanks for sharing your trees. I can enjoy them vicariously.
