December 1: Christmas Trees
I remember having live trees as a kid. They were never very large, and I have no recollection about where we got them.
But, I do remember tinsel. Lots and lots of tinsel. Putting it on strand by tedious strand. Until we got tired, and then we just threw handfuls of the stuff on there and hoped Mom wouldn’t notice.
We also had lots of handmade ornaments. I don’t think I even realized for the longest time that other people just went out and bought theirs. You mean you can do that???
It looks a little wonky, but I always really liked our Christmas tree.
