Re: Deck The Halls!

The wife has the tree up and I have bought lights for the outside, now I just need my shoulder to get better so I can put the lights up. Maybe next weekend.

I might put some lights up to line our front path, since hubby won't let me put lights on the house.

Re: Deck The Halls!

Mom and Dad have been married 50 years. They tend to add several new ornaments each year. It adds up!

Yeah, my parents have been together about 60 years; mom's collection must be into the thousands by now. I know it takes about a dozen large boxes to hold it all.

Re: Deck The Halls!

I haven't gotten 'round to decking my halls, yet; I've been super busy. I'm not going to bother with the tree because my youngest cat will just knock it down trying to climb it. *roll* I do have some ornaments that I hang from the walls, instead and the stockings go up on the windowsill in the living room. I've just got to find the time. I'll need a whole day to devote to decking the halls.

Re: Deck The Halls!

Living alone and not having people over for the main event of the season (December 24th in the evening) I usually don't bother with a tree... But I do have some decorations that I put up and one of them is in the general shape of a tree:


I would never buy a plastic xmas tree, but when I saw this white version in IKEA a couple of years ago I caved. Maybe because it doesn't pretend to be a real tree... I mean: there's no albino chlorophyll, is there?

^ A white tree goes well w/ a tuxedo kitty, too.

I saw a black tree a couple years ago. That was really cool! If it had been the right size, I would've bought it.

Re: Deck The Halls!

^ That I would have bought too


I happened to have a pack of IKEAs "Dioder" lying around and have been playing a bit about with them...


(Video recorded with all other lights off. - Click image to watch.)

Not perfect, but definitely in the kitschy spirit of the season -I think.

Re: Deck The Halls!

^Thanks, do vote for it in the upcoming vote-thread in misc. then


(And about the lit tree: don't think I'll have it on much as it interferes with the Ambilight™ on my TV (or maybe I shluld just adjust it to one (non changing) colour))
