So I wanted to share with you our Christmas Tree. In my family it has always been tradition that the tree goes up on December 1st. Three years ago, myself and Tom found ourselves in our first place just the two of us (don't get too excited, its rented) but anyway I think we ended up putting up the tree obscenely early like the beginning of November.
Then last year, our cats were kittens and they kept on pulling it down. This year? We put it up on the 10th! This is horrendously late but with how busy we have been (oh did I mention we went on holiday? No?) this was the first day it could go up!
I like to stick to very traditional colours on our tree where possible, mostly reds, greens and golds. I also HATE tinsel. Unpopular opinion maybe but I have in the past told Tom off for trying to put tinsel anywhere near the tree. If you read my blog about LOROs hospice you will know that sadly my father in law passed away back in 2012 and so this decoration takes pride of place on our tree in his memory.
I hope you've enjoyed this sneak peek of my tree. I tried to include the photo below but I can't say it looks brilliant, but it looks so cosy in our lounge with all its lights on!
