The Christmas tree rules in our house are as follows – Real tree, big as you you like, absolutely no colour co-ordination, star on top and all decorations welcome!
The cute and the colourful
The homemade and the handmade
The tacky and the traditional
The strage to the down right ridiculous
If your antlers are bent or your wings are broken don’t worry there is a place for you here.
There will be fights, as there should be, over whose decoration in whose, who has claim to the best branches and who gets to put the star on top (and that’s just the adults).
But decorating the tree was one of the best things about Christmas for me as a child, every year three new decorations joined the weird and wonderful motley crew. One for each sister.
It will be just the same now i have a family of my own. For our tree is a homage to Chrsitmasses past and present, every year new decorations added and every year new memories made.
