I am so excited about Christmas. It’s the one time of the year when I get to do all of my favorite things with the people I love.
I started off the month thinking about putting up my Christmas tree. I try and wait until at least the first of December to put it up. You can’t help but thinking about Christmas trees since they are everywhere during this time of year.
My daughter and I spotted one at the mall during our Mommy and Daughter shopping day.
Then there was one as we entered church Saturday night.
Then there were at least twelve on the stage (pulpit for us old school churchgoers) once we entered the sanctuary.
I gotta tell you that I’ve been debating over buying a real Christmas tree this year. I was feeling really discontent with the 13 year old fake one we have because to me it looks sparse and not nearly as full as the real evergreen trees.
Even comedian Kevin Hart was wrestling with the choice to remain faithful to his fake tree or to buy a real tree.
I’ll tell you in a moment what I decided to do, but you’ll have to watch the Verizon video to find out what kind of tree Kevin decided to have this year.
I decided to be content with the tree I have and settled on buying new decorations to spruce it up a bit. In lieu of traditional colors I went with aqua and silver ornaments. I also replaced all the lights with LED lights. The are more expensive up front but should cost less to run over the next few years.
I am overjoyed with the way that my tree turned out. I was a little nervous about the colors but I love the way it looks.
Now it’s your turn.
