Decorating the tree

December 13th, 2011

Christmas and Halloween always battle each other to be my favorite holiday and every year Christmas just barely comes out the winner. I think it wins because of the tree. I’m a collector of them. I guess you could say I take after my mom. Growing up I got my own full sized tree when I was about 13. My parents took me out and I bought my own ornaments and glowed with pride at decorating my very own tree in my bedroom. Every year we had 5 full sized trees and 5 half sized trees scattered through out our house. My mom changed themes often, santas, angels, bears, snowmen, nutcrackers…just to name a few. Even though I have 3 full sized trees of my own up this Christmas this tree is my favorite. There is something magical about twinkling lights.
