Annually, on the day after Thanksgiving, my family and I put up the Christmas tree. We drag out the storage bin from the recesses of my husband’s utility closet. We lay out the tree in it’s various pieces all throughout the living room. We untangle the lights, sort the decorations, untangle the garland, put together the tree, put everything on the tree and finally take everything down to reorganize them into some symmetrically, aesthetically pleasing arrangement.
Is it any wonder that it took a full two weeks after Thanksgiving to put up the tree and decorate?
This one is for Tara Smith, a fellow Burrower, who had a hectic time putting up her tree. The image above is obviously not my tree since I have yet to put mine up.
