I’m late putting up my Christmas tree this year. Usually I try to do it around Dec 1st, but this year life got in the way. So yesterday, Joe and I went shopping for the perfect holiday tree. We visited about 3 grocery stores, 2 superstores, a hardware store and one drug store, all places where trees are normally sold. This year, no tree in sight.
One place did have a few live trees to pick from, but they were scrawny and only 2 feet high. Somehow, it just doesn’t work for me, so we continued our search.
Finally, today we had success! We located a tree farm and purchased a lovely 8 foot tree. We brought it home, set it up, then pulled out the decorations. Here’s a picture of one of my ornaments, a sock monkey cow:
Now, all I have to do is wrap presents, and I’m all ready to celebrate the big day!
How are you celebrating the holiday, either Christmas or Hannukah?
