    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.

    ^ That I would have bought too :rommie:


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

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

    ^Yeah, well, um, that's a bit too un-traditional for me. But I love your Christmas avatar!

    ^Thanks, do vote for it in the upcoming vote-thread in misc. then [​IMG]


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

    ^Am loving the white tree. And no, I'm sure there's no such thing as albino chlorophyll. It would be slightly frightening if there were . *lol*

    Got my Santa nutcracker out. I just adore him. My best pal gave him to me a few years ago.

    My halls are all decked. A wreath on the door, a collection of six creches (nativity sets) scattered around the house, and a tree. Notice the Enterprise D in the center. :)

    Thank you, auntie. One of those brightly colored birdies (the one above the Enterprise) is actually a rabbit with wings. :D

    Dad brought in the tree the other night, and decorated it and lit it and then mum disassembled the whole thing the next day - but I did have time to take this shot:
