Well I’m not talking about my blog but the malls. (I love going aroud to all the malls at Christmas to see how well they've decorated.) Everywhere you go you see Christmas trees springing up and hear the sounds of carols playing. Does anyone know why they are called Christmas Carols? If you do, please let me know before I google it…I never really wondered that until just now…why not Christmas Sues or Christmas Marys…why Christmas Carols? LOL
To me Christmas is the most wonderful time of year. At home we’ve already started on decorating the Christmas tree…I had an idea for the lights and while it turned out right…it’s a tad bright. Anyway, that can be easily rectified by hiding the lights behind the ornaments. As usual around this time every year I start looking for a new tree topper…nothing really wrong with the old Angel we have but I want something different.
Just like the lights…nothing wrong with the old ones…except I wanted something a little different. Wifey was a sport and helped me scour the malls looking for the lights. I tried so many places and they were all sold out and finally at the last place I looked they were in abundance. So I grabbed five boxes just to be on the safe side although I really needed two. Thus we ended up putting three sets on the tree and like I said earlier…the tree is a little bright.
Over the weekend we were trying out different ribbon combinations and could not come to agreement so in the end I let wifey decide and she came up with a good combo. The little one not to be left out wanted to help too with unwrapping and putting up the ornaments. My nephew who is with us for a few days was also roped in to assist. It was a fun time but we ain’t done!!
Yesterday we went around to Robinson’s to check out their decorations and ornaments. We had a fun time fooling around with the tree skirts. I told my nephew about the time I went to the US and brought back a whole bunch of tree skirts for the family. As I was passing through local customs, the officer asked me what they were, and I said tree skirts but he didn’t understand and asked me if they were for caroling and I said Yes to avoid further confusion. So I had my nephew put on the tree skirt as a smock… this tree skirt was designed like a Santa suit and he looked hilarious…in hindsight I should have taken a picture. Maybe I’ll get him to do it again.
Tonight we’ll get down to a little more decorating…probably finish the tree and maybe start on the outside. The Santa’s are already out and once the tree is done we can start moving furniture about to accommodate the decorations. Over the years the collection has steadily grown to ginormous proportions. Plus I’ve even bought a few new things already this year. Ho hum… thank goodness Christmas comes but once a year…but to tell you the truth I wish Christmas was everyday!
