When I grew up the Christmas Tree was not put up until Dec. 24th during the morning times. We always got a real tree an put real candles on it. Now living in the US we merged some American traditions with the German traditions. We still celebrate Christmas Eve, but we put up our tree beginning of December. So the weekend after Thanksgiving we lugged our big boxed up tree from the attic and started putting it together, yes it is a fake tree. Having kids and pets it was not a question about authenticity it was more the question about safety. I think our tree is 9 feet high, and we don’t have a stepping stool and where to lazy to pull the ladder in. So I used my hubby to get up top. A little scary. While everyone was pitching in, our cat decided to climb into the tree and start playing with the Christmas decoration. He loves getting into the tree and sleep in there. So far no ornaments have suffered any damage, the tree has lost a few needles. All this Christmas talk made me start a search on Zibbet, and this is what I found:
so many pretty Christmas Trees, have a look for yourself.
