    Christmas time in Canada

    Hello everyone I spoke with Bob and got the thumbs up to create a thread on the mayhem that takes place every year just after Halloween up here in southern Ontario, Canada

    When I was a little boy I used to have dreams of a crystal tree, tall and slim, full of thousands of lights and ornaments. I was always a kid with his head in the clouds and Christmas became such a magical time of the year for me.

    My tree started off as a 4ft white tree. It then became a 6 foot tree followed by the tree that I am using right now a slim 8 foot Torre fur ( I think that was the name of it ) and there is a new tree coming in 2010 -2011.


    This is my second Christmas here and it is so nice to meet all the wonderful folks from all over the planet that have a love for Christmas.

    I hope that you enjoy the pictures that I will be posting in the coming days and weeks


    Mike

    Getting ready to open the box



    Let the fun begin !!!




    Starting to put the tree together ( the while stuff on the ground is artifical snow which I put on the tree every year. I collect as much of it when I take the tree down for the following year )




    I use white ties to remind me where I need to continue with the lights after
    taking a break.

    Great job coming along, Mike! So are you working with an manufacturer pre-lit tree or one that you wired yourself and left in place post-season? I'm like you - I can't have too many lights!

    Looking forward to seeing your work continue!

    Actually Kitty the had nights in it when I purchased it 10 years ago. When I first bought it I was able to tightly wrap 1100 lights into the core of the tree which I have been able to leave in the tree. I add another 1500 lights plus another 1100 twinkle lights which I remove
    every year.


    When I change trees in 2 years I will buy a prelit one and are hoping to go the LED route like Tinkerbell has done for half of the lights .

    KItty btw I love your tree it is beautiful !!!!!!!!!!

    :gift:

    I love big trees with many hundreds of lights on.. I love your tree friend, even if you have not put any ornaments yet. When you do, I think your tree will be just wonderful.
    Btw, how tall is it?
