As I have been driving around the neighbourhood, I have noticed in the last week or so, many people have their Christmas trees and decorations up already, so early I thought?
After thinking about it I came to the conclusion that after the year we have all had, everyone is just wanting a bit of cheer and something to look forward to. I have to say I have enjoyed seeing the pretty twinkling lights and good wishes in peoples windows. So today, at my office, I went into the storage and got out all the decorations and made a start on the tree. This year I positioned it in a window so it can be seen by people outside and inside, hoping it also brings cheer to others.
There is something about decorating a Christmas tree that can’t help but make you feel happy and grateful, although the sun was streaming through the window and it got so hot I had to put the A/C on ! I thought to myself that this is what it must feel like in California when they put their decorations up!
I’ll be putting my home tree up this weekend, I suspect an army of you will be doing the same!
Happy decorating my friends – enjoy!
