discussions are starting on facebook already, is it too soon to bring out the
Christmas tree? The preparations are
already underway; toys are being sorted or moved making room ready for the tree
to take its grand position. It seems a
common topic on mumsnet
I am a stickler for waiting till at least the middle of
December but I see plenty of people keen to get it up now! It would drive me mad, another thing for the
boys to mess around with, last year youngest managed to stuck some bauble
packing up his nose! So as you can
imagine I am quite happy to delay bringing out the tree for the time being…
do love Christmas and all the trimmings; it’s very cosy having the room lit up
with sparkling lights from the tree itself, whilst supping on warm tea and mince
pies. If I am feeling particularly
Christmassy I also insist to a little singsong of Christmas carols! But it still feels far off to me; I do not
want another item collecting dust for the next few months whilst we wait for
Christmas to come.
I said the tree all lit up is a highlight for me, but I cannot stand the
process of trailing the lights around and around the tree then trying to hide
the wire so it looks more natural. It
seems to take forever, hubbie always conveniently comes up with an excuse for
that part, then returns when we get to the easier parts of the decorating,
hanging a few token baubles here and there.
This year I have been looking at artificial
Christmas trees with lights built in!
My friend has one and it seems so much easier. Perhaps if I did not have to think about the lights I would be
tempted to get my tree up a little earlier, as it is I think I put it off as
long as possible to avoid facing that part!
Actually why should I
enjoy the inviting feeling of little lights everywhere only at Christmas,
looking at Lights4fun there are fairy
lights that would set off our living room lovely. Winter can be so dreary and dull! So I think extra lights would keep me feeling happy, I especially love the delicate rose flower lights.
