WHITE IT IS!

This week, I wanted to run another holiday edition. I am so excited to put up my Christmas tree, I can hardly stand it! Do you have yours up yet?
For as long as I can remember, I have always put my tree up the day after Thanksgiving. I started the tradition when I was 13. The day after Thanksgiving, I would ask my mom to drive me downtown to the Farmer’s Market, where I would search until I found the perfect 5 foot Christmas tree.
We would load it on top of the car, take it home and my dad and I would lug it upstairs to my bedroom. I would spend the rest of the evening wrapping each individual branch with little white lights and pulling out all of the ornaments my parent’s had collected for me over the years to dress the tree.
My family thought I was crazy for 1) putting a 5 foot Christmas tree in my room and 2) putting it up so early. They would always wait until mid-December, but I couldn’t wait that long. Putting up the Christmas tree was always my favorite way to start the holiday season.
This is the first year, since I was 13, that I have not decorated the Christmas tree Thanksgiving weekend. We spent Thanksgiving in Santa Fe, NM with my cousin and some friends. Sunday, we tried to go to the nursery to pick-up the tree, but they were closed! We went back again yesterday afternoon, and closed again. I cannot start decorating the rest of the house until the tree is up. Hopefully, we can get it up this week, but my question for you this week is…
Real or Artificial?
Is your tree up yet?
I have decided to offer the Cyber Monday special one more day.
If you’re thinking of freshening up your blog for the New Year, this is the perfect opportunity.
