I don't have much spare room to work with so the tree goes to the same place every year. I just move things around a little bit and ofcourse add some new decorations every year. I LOVE IT. I can't wait. I love to love Christmas so much.
Merry Snowy Christmas
Love & Peace to the World
I'm going through renovations, and I still don't know how long everything will be pulled apart for. I know I'll have something on my door, but inside the house is another story.
This year, my decoration wil be pretty much the same with last years.
Tree will go on the same corner, I will just add more candy canes on and more toys, I always prefer them from balls.
I like my tree to remind me of my childhood..
I will also buy a few more big red bows for the tree and garlands, that decorate the whole house.
However, I think, I may have to buy some extra lights for the tree, cause, 800 did not seem to be enough, last Christmas. Im getting 500 more, I think.
Oh!! I almost forgot!! And something new for my decoration!! I will finally hang on the wall of my living room, two lovely Christmas puzzles I made this summer!!!

And so, as Tiny Tim observed, "God Bless us!! Everyone!!''
A Christmas Carol - Charles Dickens (1843)
Pretty much the same as most years,except my wife changes the colours of the decorations,golds,reds etc,something different most years.Our tree always goes in the same spot,we have two almost frosted glass windows in one wall of the lounge,so the tree goes there and lights reflect back into the room,and also shine through to the hall and stairs.
ps Just bought some mince pies,and having one with a cup of tea.
I also have to put away my usual decorations to make room for Christmas. The basic plan is always the same with some variey in the details. The foyer tree is white lights, white crochet snowflakes and crystal icicles; guest room has a small seedling with characters from children's books and movies. The living room tree varies: Some years I use our shiny blown glass ornies, others our country fabric, wood and pottery ones and occasionally our sparkly turquoise, chartreuse and purple ones (not too often though). My trees always have angel-dog tree toppers since brittanies and australian shepherds have been our fur children for many, many years. My Santas perch on almost every flat surface and I have a nativity scene in most rooms.
What I'm really excited for is a ceramic tree I was given last year. In the 60s and 70s housewives made these ceramic Christmas trees as crafts. They have little holes in them for coloured glass or plastic (sometimes shapes like birds, or stars, or bulbs) and there's a hole for a light bulb in the bottom, when you turn it on all the glass/plastic lights up. My grandmother and my step mother both had them when I was growing up and I have fond memories of playing with the glass bits (although i did get into a lot of trouble for it). When my grandmother passed away I was supposed to get hers, but no one could ever find it. Last year, a friend of my aunt's found her mothers and remembering how much I had wanted one, gave it to me. I didn't have an opportunity to use it last year, so I can't wait to get it out this year.
This isn't mine, but here's a pic for reference:
I remember those ceramic Christmas trees vividly! We didn't have one but they were quite popular!
