I should qualify my last post by saying that I actually did, technically, put up a tree in my apartment.  This is a paper tree that comes in a box (the box actually turns into the tree stand that you see on the glass table here).  My Mom sent it to me sort of as a joke and sort of feeling sorry for me not being able to come home and really help them decorate.

The tree was actually fairly elaborate to put together.  And, as you can see, it's approximately the size of one very cute black cat (who was very helpful in assisting me as I put the tree together).  The picture is a little goofy because I took it with my cell phone.

*And thanks go out to Chrissi for helping me brighten up the picture.



What a nice gift from your mum. It looks really good, and so does the cat!

Kelda, what a great idea to put it in front of the window. You have decorated both the inside and outside of your house. Nice!  :)

its funny - a few of you have mentioned this. Its quite normal practice to put your tree in the window in the UK.

I can remeber as a hild how xciting it was on long car journeys in December to count the trees. As it got nearer and nearer xmas there was more and more and they were easier to spot!

One set of my lights have blown. (I have 7 sets on my tree) I'll leave it to the weekend to try & sort that out me thinks!

Gorgeous Tree philiip!!

Phillip, your tree keeps widening and widening!  That would take up a large portion of my living room, but it is gorgeous.  And I think that the photo of the star would make a great banner image soon.

Kelda, it's pretty common here to put a tree by a window too, often a main window.  Ours is.

Now that I've put up and decorated our tree, and put out a few decorations, I'm glad I went to the "bother."  Tent do look right.  :)

Time to revive this thread :D!


We put up our tree and some more decorations yesterday.

Voilā, the tree. For the first time in an eternitiy, I have a themed tree again. It's held in red and silver. The last years, my kids always wanted to hang just everything on the tree, so they were always very colourful :laugh:. But the children are getting older, and it was indeed my middle child who asked for a themed tree this year.




I have a few ornaments that are special. The first is a small bell which always, always has been my most favorite ornament since I was a child and it hung on my parents' tree back then. I think this ornament is as old as I am, or even older (and I'll be 42 in about two weeks). I'm very proud of this old treasure. The ornament, not myself, dummies! ;)

An elk! :)
Actually, it's a moose. But since there's some confusion both in English and German about the elk/moose terms, I count it as elk. Reminds me of BBM, of my Scandinavian Brokie friends and of my cousin, who gave me the ornament.





See the wire? Reminds me a bit of barbed wire and therefore counts as cowboy reference. To me anyway.





And my second special gem. Ennis' truck as Christmas ornament. I guess to some of you it might be familiar.
Thank you so much to the Brokie friend who sent it to me.
I know it doesn't fit with the red/silver theme, but I don't care. I LOVE this ornament, and it goes on my tree no matter what.
