Days of Christmas

On the 7th day of Christmas…

advent7As stated earlier this holiday season, on the 3rd day of Christmas my favorite and arguably the most important decoration for this holiday is the Christmas tree. After all, we make room for it in our living rooms. We decorate it to the max until it practically glows. We stuff wrapped presents underneath it. It’s the focal point of any Christmas celebration.

It can be both fun and exhausting. In years past, I never took much part in the decorating of the tree, what with my mom always moving the ornaments I hung to different places. Haha!

I also did quite a bit of it on my own. My brother and his wife were busy with the garland, and the outdoor lights. So, I took to placing ornaments on the tree while Christmas movies played in the background and it was one of the most relaxing and fun tree decorating periods I can remember. (Probably because I actually helped. :p)

The best part was that it was completely set up within a couple of hours. :p As much as I love preparing for the holiday season, sometimes it’s nice just to be able to sit back and relax and enjoy it all, which was easily done with another Christmas movie in the glow of a beautifully decorated tree.
