O Christmas Tree.. O Christmas Tree..
I know I had been posting a lot about Christmas Trees (the Aluminum Tree, the Plumeria Tree, etc.) but when "We Are That Family" announced a Carnival on Christmas Trees, I couldn't help but join!
Kristen spoke about tradition. When I was growing up, it was tradition in our family to put up and decorate the Christmas Tree on December 1. It's my parents' wedding anniversary and it's a very special day. We usually go out to eat on a special restaurant (we only do that once a year, we don't usually eat out). So, December 1st was the traditional Christmas Tree day.
Now in my family here on Maui, we changed a little bit. It started 3 year ago. we put up our Christmas Tree on the weekend after Thanksgiving. Actually, it's a tradition that on Thanksgiving Day, our friend Kenny helps my hubby take the tree out of the storage (yes, we use the plastic tree. And so well see if this tradition sticks - 3 years in a row so far :)
For a gala of Christmas Trees, go to We Are That Family's "O Share Your Christmas Tree"
