Our Christmas Tree
We have used an artificial tree for over 20 years. This artificial tree. We think it's holding up well. The Husband went out to buy replacement lights and discovered once he got home that the cords were white instead of the green we usually have. Instead of going back to exchange them, we're pretending it's snow. Most of our ornaments are from when I was a child or from when The Kids were growing up. We have so many that we've stopped putting them all on the tree. We didn't get all the decorations out this year either, but ever since The Grandmother's fall and continuing need we've done much less decorating. I'm just not much in the mood to put it all back in boxes in January. What we did get out looks festive. We usually decorate the tree in time for Advent and take it down before Epiphany, so it stays up a long time.
