…is up! I put it up on Saturday.
People think I am an absolute nut job because I put my Christmas tree up really early. Shurrup. I LOVE Christmas. The decorations, the holiday feeling (although I’m seldom on holiday during December/January)…the atmosphere…the shopping centres…everything about Christmas is awesome for me. It’s like the entire world shifts a gear. Looking at my Christmas tree makes me really happy. I love watching the lights flicker. I’m like a little kid when it comes to Christmas.
Last year my tree was up in September already. I’ve really held out this year! We put up our Christmas tree before we knew about Jamie…and gazing at my Christmas tree cheered me up even through the most dire circumstances. I did take it down early last year though…I took it down mid January…I usually leave it up till the end. I was really depressed after the holiday season had passed…nothing to distract me from my gried and I decided tearing down the tree and moving on would be best.
Next year Babyice will most likely be crawling around wreaking havoc, so we’ll most likely not be putting up the big tree next year.
Here is the decorated tree:
A new addition to the Christmas tree this year, edible candy canes:
Don’t worry, they are wrapped in plastic 🙂 I also decided to buy myself one new Christmas decoration each year and I found this one that I could just NOT resist!
The bells actually jingle. How awesome is that?! And of course….
So when do you put your Christmas tree up?
