Our kids have started bugging us lately – “When can we put up the Christmas tree?”
A few years ago, we had a tradition where we’d put up the Christmas tree in the first week of December. However, I think it was last year we thought that with the amount of effort to decorate it, we might as well put it up earlier – in the first week of November! It did seem a bit early, so this year we’re trying to hold out until December again.
The kids just love putting up the tree – looking at each decoration, suggesting colour schemes, hanging decorations off their ears 🙂
I can’t believe the thought that goes into the Christmas tree. We’ve recently moved, so our next question is – where do we put it? It’s nice to have it somewhere central, but it’s got to have space for presents, and access to power of course 🙂 And of course, maybe a little distant from kids’ bedrooms so that Santa can sneak in without waking anyone up.
