It’s been a week of wrangling with the Christmas tree at our house. Multiple strands of new lights were strung carefully on the tree for big impact, but here and there malfunctions and blackouts occurred. On the third day we still don’t have fully functional lights, which is problematic mostly because until that is resolved, nothing else goes on the tree.
In light of that (no pun intended) I thought The Christmas Tree might be a good launch pad for today’s FF. So…
1) Real tree, or “fake?”
Real. Fake trees make the Baby Jesus cry.
2) White or colored lights?
I prefer white. I feel like colored lights steal the thunder of the ornaments. However, I prefer colored lights for the exterior.
3) When do you put up and take down your tree?
Mmmm..I’ll probably do it this weekend. In these parts, trees quickly become fire hazards, so we don’t have them up too long.
4) Tell us about your favorite ornament (share a picture, if you can).
5) What goes on the top of your tree (again, share a photo, if possible)?
I have both an angel and a big red bow. This year, the bow wins.
