Finished the outside of the house last weekend, and we're getting our tree tonight.
I'm protesting Christmas this year.
I'm waiting to go home so i can help the family decorate the tree My partner went and chopped down a really beautiful tree, sent me a photo! Looks beautiful!! I can't wait til it's finished
I didn't even start yet.
I just went out and bought a new spiral tree for outside to replace my ghetto half lit spiral tree.
They don't have them here so we bought a fake tree
Fake trees rule. Yeah the fresh pine smell is nice but sweeping up the needles and throwing it out (when I was younger I would go behind apartment buildings on cold, dry days looking for piles of trees to set on fire...good times) is a pain in the ass. With a fake tree you can leave most of the lights/ornaments on it and just shove it in a closet after Christmas.
Well it makes it feel like Christmas anyway
This is the 1st year i have had a real tree. I was always set on the fake ones cause thats what i was brought up with and plus the thought of the mess almost gave me a heart attack (mild case of OCD, LOL) But my partner insisted we get a real one so thought we could give it a go this year
I put up just enough so the neighbors don't think I'm a scrooge.
I always buy a real tree, then on New Years we go camping in the desert and everyone brings their trees out and we make a bon fire with them and jump the flames on our motor sickles.
...makes a "healthy, happy New Year" more of an achievement, I suppose.
Just put up my airblown 10 foot white trash Santa in the front yard. The neighbors only put out white, tasteful Xmas lights. I put up anything. The flashier the better. They hate it.
probably get the tree this weekend....no lights or decorations on the outside
There was a time when you might find a .177" hole in that if I was your neighbor.
(I've matured since then.)
Nothing a little tape wouldn't fix. It's the deluxe lighted version that blares out distorted holiday music too!
LOL my mom bought a fake tree too but she did not measure it before she bought it so there is no top part too it . . Its the most asinine Christmas tree ever!!!
That's the only other good thing about it as far as I'm concerned - the tree is perfect. Well with the top I mean
Gonna do it sometime this weekend
