Re: Deck The Halls!

I love everyone's pictures. They are so fun. John has insisted on a real tree this year, which will be cool. I haven't had a real tree in a long time. Hopefully, we will have the tree up next week. We have decided on silver and blue decorations this year. I will have John post help me pictures when we finish. This will be our first Christmas with Baby Elizabeth so we are very excited!

It does, doesn't it?

My mom taught me how to decorate a tree:
"Are we done yet, Mom?"
"No, there's still some green showing!"

Your mom sounds like my dad. In 50 years of marriage, Mom and Dad have collected 400+ ornaments. And they always manage to get every last one on the tree!

Re: Deck The Halls!

Heh. That's exactly like my family. Check out some of these pics from my parents' house. Keep in mind that we're all atheists---and yet my Mom puts a Martha Stewart Christmas to SHAME.
Last year, Mom & Dad had just moved into a new house, so Mom told everyone that Christmas would be a "low-key" affair. Here's her version of a low key Christmas:






...and my hubby thinks I'm nuts for putting up a tree!

I totally agree, I'm an atheist and my wife is Jewish.

Another secular Christmas for this atheist and her family of atheists! I'll be spending Christmas at my mother's, as usual, which, once the snow starts falling, could be the picture on a freaking Christmas card!

Re: Deck The Halls!

I went to hang out with some friends earlier in the week. The intention was to go see "Skyfall" that evening, yet somehow I got roped into helping them buy a Christmas tree and setting up decorations before we went to the theater. I swear it looked like Christmas vomited all over their living room. They have boxes and boxes of decorations.

TSQ, I love your mother's house. With or without atheistic Christmas decorations.

Very cool! I especially covet the gingerbread house. What are the trees made of?
