This year is our 25th year of celebrating Christmas together. We are definitely the kind of family that collects ornaments and we love the eclectic feel to our tree. Ted's mom gave us a shellacked cookie ornament of a bride and groom 25 years ago for our first tree--how can you throw that away?
Are you the kind of family that cuts a fresh-cut tree, a pre-cut tree, or an artificial?
For twenty-four years we cut down our tree, but last year the place we went to closed down. So, we had a family vote and bought our first pre-cut tree. I love it. We usually turn on the Christmas music, put on our Santa hats and take turns hanging ornaments.
Are you the kind of family that decorates the tree together, or is there just one person assigned the task?
What ever your traditions, may you have a blessed week of preparing for Christmas--preparing Him room in your hearts.
