Hello my Christmas friends. Before I share the photos of my decoration efforts I would like to share some of my thoughts with you as you've become a part of my life through ATC. As you probably all know by now, this has been a hard year for me and my family because of my father's death last February. In my country it is customary when somebody dies, for the first year to keep a low profile and not to decorate for any occasion. I debated this long and hard and talked about it with my husband but the decision was an easy one as we both knew in our hearts that my dad would have kicked our ***** if we deprived his grandchildren of a Christmas Tree our ourselves too. As it happens the last thing he bought for me was a Merry Christmas decoration and that was last Christmas.

So I would like to dedicate this thread to him because I miss him so much.

And last but not least I would like to wish you all good health and a long happy life for you and for your loved ones as well and of course A Very Merry Christmas.

In Loving Memory of
