It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

When it came to Christmas, I’ve always had a fake tree. My wife always had a real one. When we got married we settled on an artificial tree because it was easier at the time. So now after almost ten years of marriage we have a real one.

I’ll go up into the attic and get our Christmas decorations and start to deck the halls. As holidays go, this has always been my favorite. Not just for the gifts. There’s something about this time of year that brings out the best in people. Something I wish would happen the other 11 months of the year.

This was my moms favorite holiday too. She would start decorating right after thanksgiving and would leave everything up until mid January. She’d bake cookies and listen to her favorite Christmas songs from the ventures christmas album.

I hope everyone is enjoying this time of year. Let loose, have fun, make great memories. I’ll be back soon with a fully decorated tree.

  1. That’s one good-looking tree. I prefer a real one myself, although I can definitely understand getting a fake one. They’re much easier to deal with. I just think you can’t beat the smell of a natural tree, though. It can be a pain but I think it’s worth it. Not to take your wife’s side. Haha. Hope your holidays rock!

  2. You should come visit, my wife does Christmas just like your mom. Minus the Ventures, she likes Pentatonix. My lights were up before Thanksgiving because she wanted them up and we weren’t going to be here the day after Thanksgiving… Always give the lady that makes the cookies what she wants or no cookies for you…👀
