It is hard to believe but yes in no time at all Christmas will be upon us! My local jazz station
on the telly has already switched to Jazz Christmas music and it is still
November! Well I'm enjoying the carols and it has me
thinking about what type of tree to put up this year.
In our last home in Ontario we had two trees. Yes that's right two trees!
My husband calls me the Christmas lady. I love Christmas and I put up the
trees December 1st.
I had two trees because I had two themes going on.
Having a child changes alot of things. That includes the decorations and lights
on the trees. I like either all white lights or just red. My son hates white
lights and wants all coloured. The coloured lights really don't go with my
Victorian style tree. So that is how we ended up doing two trees.
Here is my formal tree with white lights....
a blogger so no close ups of my beautiful
The tree in the back is our folk art tree with
multi-coloured lights that make Sam very
happy. No close-ups either sadly.
This year is going to be a tough decision of which ornaments to use.
Will it be old fashioned Victorian tree or folk art multi coloured tree?
Sam said just this past weekend..."Mom don't go putting those
ugly white lights on the tree this year...I hate them!"
Okay Sam...sigh...but I think I just might compromise here
multi-coloured lights (shudder) on my pretty Victorian tree.
Until then I will ponder which ornaments to use and sit back
listening to the Christmas Carols!
