    Default DO YOU ALL HAVE YOUR CHRISTMAS TREE UP?

    So did you put it up last weekend or is it going up this one ?

    Can you describe your tree ....

    Colour?

    Size?

    How you decorate it .... is it modern, traditional etc ?

    Do not have mine yet , I have a real one about 7ft

    We're getting a real one at the weekend. Don't know how long it'll last as our pup is 6mths old and destroys most things. The twinkling lights are just an invitation to play.
    love Sarah.

    I wish I was like you ......

    But....

    I love real trees...and always get my way.. I have to totally re arrange my living room to accomodate the biggest tree we can fit in ....but still do it ...nobody....nobody....gets to decorate it ....but me...children contribute....but they know I rule!

    I am such an easy going person usually ...but me and the Nordman ....I become ....zero tolerance on anyone who dares to disagree with my choices....

    I love Christmas.... Both mid 20's sons still return from either end of the Uk to celebrate...

    Normality returns on Christmas eve ...the tree is up ...the decorations sorted..the family and friends arrive for a big bash ....20 days to go ...

    Then I have to vacuum every day ....worry the needles are going into my dog's paws...cope with everyone moaning about having to squeeze around furniture... Pander to DH issues over watering the tree and having to test all the bulbs when one goes out...fret over recycling appropriately...

    Oh I wish one year someone dares to over ride my bossy overpowering tree issue......

    Did ours yesterday mindees were enthralled this am! My dds each have a 3 foot one in their own room they get mini crackers and candy canes on them and whatever decorations are left over or small enough. This year we found an old one )they had new ones last year) and we have put it up in hall. Our big one is on the way out had it about six years so I had to doctor it a bit and dh wasn't impressed but I am sure we will get a decent one after Christmas for next year a lot cheaper! I think it looks grand!

    No. Playroom (artificial) one is going up next Tuesday so the little ones can help decorate it.

    The rest of the decorations and our family tree are going up on Saturday 14th. We get a real one and I want to give it a fighting chance of surviving until New Year

    We're getting a real tree next week but keeping it in the garage until 19th when the last mindee finishes for the holidays. I have to move lots of toy storage out of the way to fit the tree in. That's why we wait

    if I wasn't having visitors this year I may have sulked and sulked until I got the real tree but my practical side won out the need the extra settee this year :-)
