Decorating the tree is such an exciting and fun time. It’s one of my favourite things to do at Christmas time. It gives you an excuse to spend time with family and stay away from devices like phones or tablets, if only for a short time.
The best part is, you can decorate any way you please, and whatever suits you as a family. There are no set rules. Just go crazy.
This year we decided to buy a real tree, and instead of just using the same old decorations (which we were going to do), I used some of the money I had, and brought some new ones, including the ones in the photos on this post, as well as chocolates and two lots of the gold bead chains to wind around the tree.
I don’t think I have ever been so impressed with our efforts. We went in with an idea and a theme, and came out with what I think is going to be a more traditional way of decorating our tree.
I’m going to be upset when we have to take it down, but that is a few weeks away, so for now, I will just enjoy it.
The moral of the story is, it’s your tree, so your rules! Do it your way!
