Oh! Christmas Tree
Growing up we always had to wait for Dad to bring our tree and it was something that he always dragged his feet in bringing us one. After moving away from home I would put my tree up right after American Thanksgiving or at least by the first week in December. Now that I am getting older it seems that I don't get it up as early ~ maybe that is the reason that my Dad dragged his feet.
I remember my grandma telling me stories of the trees that her family had when she was growing up. She told me that the tree was put in a special room in the house and the door was always closed except when they went into see the tree. They would put the tree up about a week or so before Christmas and leave the tree up until late January. The tree had candles on it so if it was lite someone had to be there for the time it was lit. I always wanted to have a tree that had candles for lights instead of bulbs.
Well I did have a candlelit tree......
This was the first tree that I put up after moving from home and I still have it.
I then graduated to an artificial tree...
Some year I will graduate to a real tree!
|Still no real tree... ARTIFICIAL.|
I drove around town and took some pictures of the trees that peoples and shops have up already. They are just starting to put them up. I need to go and take a few more with my camera instead of with my i-phone.
This is one of my favorite display...
I took this picture last year.
