How tacky would it be to leave this Christmas tree on our landing going to the second floor?
I love the glow it provides and I don’t have to turn on the overhead light when I go upstairs.
The tree was an impulse purchase a few years ago when some friends from out-of-town called to see if they could stop in around Christmas. We normally don’t have people drop in on us and our family wasn’t coming so I didn’t get put any Christmas decorations inside the house. The outside was decorated.
I found this six-foot primitive tree at 40% off on Christmas Eve. I grabbed it and some lights and voila! Instant Christmas tree that I could carry. The red beads and lights stay on the tree and after Christmas it lives like that in the basement.
I put some candy canes on it this year and called it done.
The “big” tree is still up in the living room but all the ornaments are packed away. That tree will go back in the box this week. The rest of the decorations inside and out are put away.
If it’s above zero and we still have some light when I get home today, I’ll show you my snowman on the front door.
