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.

^Woot! I've never counted the ornaments I have; I can't imagine how many there are.

Re: Deck The Halls!

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

Re: Deck The Halls!

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))
