I love Christmas! Like love, love, love it. Christmas is absolutely my favourite time of the year and I get all excited about it every year. This weekend was finally time that I was allowed to put up my Christmas decorations, and my house looks great!
This is my tree – every year we buy a real tree. I think that, growing up in the middle of nowhere, Canada, always having a real tree, it’s just something that makes it feel like Christmas. Unfortunately for my poor husband, my tree philosophy is: the bigger, the prettier! The tree, before trimmed, was as tall as our living room, which has a fairly high ceiling. And then we discovered that the trunk was to big for our tree stand. We ended up breaking it – oops! Emergency trip out to get another (nicer) one! And then I got to decorate it. I love that part! I’m guessing that someday, when we have kids, I’ll have to share that pleasure, so I’ll enjoy it for now.
This year, the decorating was made even better by a lovely glass of hot apple cider (a non-alcoholic alternative to mulled wine) and two new CD’s. I was SO excited to be able to get these, and I can HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who wants some chilled Christmas music. The Michael Buble one is a bit more upbeat throughout, but both are lovely and calm and fantastic!
I think that’s it for today! Hope you’re all enjoying getting ready for Christmas as much as I am!
