On the 1st December I started playing my Christmas music (at long last), watched a couple of Christmas movies in the air conditioning and put up our Christmas Tree!
The Aussie wasn’t convinced about putting a tree up as we will be away for the actual Christmas Day but I am a determined sort of person, so we have a tree! I think he not so secretly likes the house being festive.
Here is our tree:
Last year we only had a very small space for our tree so I had to get a teeny tree (and when I went to buy it they didn’t have green trees so we had to get a black tree). When we moved house in May this year we ended up with a much bigger tree space so I upgraded the tree a bit to a 6 foot tree!
After a bit of a hunt around the garage we found our decorations and I set to setting up our tree. We have a selection of gold and silver baubles as well as some red/white and white/red wooden decorations which I bought a few years ago when we lived in Darwin. They don’t necessarily go with the gold and silver theme but I really like to use them.
I love all things festive and and it definitely helps make me feel festive having a tree up.
Have you put your tree up yet? I have seen that people have already had their trees up for couple of weeks which seems a bit crazy but then again I have read that it is supposed to make you happier so who can argue with that?
