O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum
This weekend left me under no illusion that Christmas is on its way to the point that I even started to dust off the old Christmas music and give it a play. The national grid went down for a while when we plugged in our lights and the Christmas cards are sat in a pile waiting for me to write them.
We haven’t got a tree yet, mainly because Christmas is abroad this year and past experience has shown that early buying of tree leads to the return home presenting us with a seasonal stick and a floor covered in baubles and needles! The tree for me though, is one of those rituals that I would never change. A blaze of colour and memories, music playing and of course the obligatory domestic about whether the damned thing is straight or not. (I’m ALWAYS right on that one…..well almost).
Some people like coordination, some people like random messiness and I’m pretty sure that behind most decorated trees there is at least one story or memory. So I want to try something….and this is one of those posts where you hold you breath, cross your fingers and pray for participation that doesn’t make you look like a total twat!
I know a lot of you already have your trees up and away because I’ve seen the photos on Twitter so I thought why not bring them together in one glittering whirlwind of all things Chrismassy and nice? So if you’ve put your tree up and you’ve taken a picture of it, how about putting it in the comment section below (you can do this via www.twitpic.com or www.yfrog.com and I’m sure other sites which allow you to copy the HTML) if it all gets too hard drop me an email and I’ll do it for you.
Here is hoping and praying…….I mean……you wouldn’t want me to be without a tree now would you? 🙂
