Awww Lee ... so pretty!  We've got an artificial tree this year too.  Really nice big Nordman Firs cost about 35 - 40 ($70 -$80) .... that's a lot when you've got three kids to buy presents for, not to mention a whole bunch of nephews neices etc etc.  So if we've got plenty of spare cash we get a real one, but for this year, our lovely pre-lit one will do very nicely.

The imprtant thing is we had fun and we were togther! ... and that's what it's all about Lee  :-*

Just 11 days to go before mine goes up!

We don't have a "designer" tree, just a whole mishmash of pretty baubles and silly toys and loads of tinsel!

We don't have a designer tree either -- our tree topper is a Shriner's fez.

Well We put ours up Sunday.
We usually do it the Sunday after Thanksgiving but with things being what they are this year I did it Sunday with my Daughter. The tree we did in the house I shared with my wife, we did it up big time. We had a 9.5 ft tree and it was decorated to the hilt. We also had a secondary tree in the living room.
This year i went and got a pre-lit tree at Wal-mart and put out what decorations I had.
It was fun. It looks pretty good for a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree! LOL

Here are a few pics...

That's a real nice tree, Richard.  :D  I like the little Christmas Village on the table, too.  :D

Heya,

I'm posting this from my parents' spread out here near Chicago.  We're going to put our Christmas tree up tomorrow and my Dad lit the outdoor lights (little white lights in the bushes and around the front door) for the first time tonight.

I figured I'd better report this here. :)

I made my first visit to an IKEA store yesterday...and they were putting up their Christmas merchandise! There were some attractive metal Moravian stars with lights inside. But I couldn't get interested...it was 82 degrees outside!!

My objection to Christmas decorations in October stems from my love of Halloween and Thanksgiving. I simply can not stand having those wonderful holidays swallowed up in the Christmas industrial complex!!

At my house, we make a pilgrimage to find a tree in the forest near our house on the first weekend in December. That's when Christmas officially starts, and no earlier!
May 2019 be better for us all.

On my way in to work this morning, I noticed the first store to have its outside Christmas decorations up.  :(

Must have been Trump supporters. ...  ;D

OK, I must be losing it. This morning, there were no outside Christmas decorations at this store.  ???

Window at night without a flash. The two objects in the smaller windows are the outlines of turkeys.

windows with flash....I think the 'forms' look more like turkeys in this shot.
