Christmas is just around the corner. And no Christmas is perfect without a Christmas tree to boast right? Even Mr. Bean knows how important it is to have a huge Christmas tree to liven up the festive joy huh. Even though yours truly is not a disciple of Jesus, I love Christmas as well. The merry mood and jolly spirit that come with it make Christmas such a heart-warming festival to celebrate. Besides Chinese New Year, Christmas is the best festival on earth. Ha :D
Our Christmas tree and ornaments.
It is almost impossible for me to put a real Christmas tree in my home. That is why my wife and I opted for a more accommodating plastic Christmas tree to put in the main hall of our home. We bought it for RM20 (US$6). It was pretty small too, standing at around 4 feet tall I guess. The "mainframe" of the Christmas tree was made of iron, so it is pretty easy to be bent to resemble the branches of a Christmas tree. 5 minutes is all you need and voila you have your very own Christmas tree. :)
After we had "erected" our Christmas tree, it was time to decorate it with some ornaments that we had bought. A bit of hanging decorations would make our Christmas tree more lively and attractive. So usually we will have baubles, bells, santa claus, drums and of course a glittering star at the summit of our Christmas tree. And ouh yeah....I almost forget, we need beautiful stocking as well. If not where would Santa stuff our gifts right? :)
As you could see, after putting up the decorations our little Jasmine girl began to grab them or pull them down. Can't be helped I guess. She was just too attracted by those shiny, jiggly decorations especially the baubles. Ha :D Let's see if all the hanging Christmas decorations will survive till Christmas. We had a fun time putting up our Christmas Tree. Hopefully we will make it a yearly affair to celebrate Christmas. :)
So have you put up your Christmas Tree?
