This just makes me think about the wide tastes everyone has in Tree Decoration. The first year I was living on my own I went out and bought a little 4 foot Tree for my apartment and a bunch of lights and decorations. My girlfriend, when she saw it, remarked that it looked "COLD" because it was pretty much all White and Light Blue lights with a couple clear crystal and silver ball ornaments. I thought it looked "Classy" but once the girl moved in a couple years later we switched over to full sized with multicolored lights, ribbons, and glass ornaments. Clearly my taste in tree decoration was "WRONG" lol.
"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." ~Charles Dickens
