If not for Fab Moms' Christmas party, I wouldn't think of putting up our tree and decorate it as early as November. Honestly, I was feeling a little down and didn't feel like celebrating yet because of Typhoon Haiyan. Later on I realized that no matter how devastating Yolanda was and no matter how frustrating the news I hear everyday, I still need to put up our tree and prepare for the merrymaking. In my mind, I became hopeful that things will eventually turn out fine.
This is how our tree looks like with the lights on. It's only 5 feet and its theme is same as last year-- red and gold. This tree is the same old tree we used almost 4 years ago.
I wish to buy a bigger tree next year and use white decors. Also need to glam up our living room with some accent and display lights. Nonetheless, there's still 13 days more to go before Christmas. Aside, from the tree, I also hung a garland at the dining area, a wreath by the door, and then a centerpiece following the same theme. I think that's all and we're ready.
How about you? Is your Christmas tree up? Are you done hanging all the ornaments? Tell me about it.
