Our tradition for the past three years has been to get our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving and decorate it over the weekend. This year instead of going to a tree stand and having lunch, we opted for the more cost effective trip to Home Depot and Thanksgiving leftovers at Gramma and Grampop's house. It's too early to get a tree, especially since we keep ours up through the twelve days of Christmas. By the time we have our Epiphany dinner, the tree is a screaming fire hazard. But it's our tradition and we are sticking to it! The girls have their own boxes of ornaments and they are placed one the tree first. Then out come our Disneyland ornaments that we have been faithfully collecting on our family visit to the Happiest Place on Earth each December and then an array of other favorites. Finally the angel that I salvaged from my mom tops the tree.
We are looking forward to a peaceful, joyous Christmastime and pray the same for you!
