Decorating the Christmas tree is one of my favourite parts of December. My mum refuseses to let us put up the tree before my sister’s birthday (the 2nd) so as soon as she gives us the go-ahead, the tree goes right up. It makes the living room feel a lot more atmospheric and seeing it every day makes me way too excited for Christmas morning.
My mum hates putting up the tree – we don’t have a real tree beccause the needles would end up all over the place so synthetic Christmas at my house!
Our tree isn’t one of those ones that looks totally perfect and is the most photogenic ever – ours is very personal to our family and is filled with little ‘Babys first Christmas’ baubles and trinkets that we’ve picked up over the years.
The tree angel has always been kept in my room until the tree goes up, this year my little sister put it on the tree. It wouldn’t be complete without the angel!
Putting up our tree is a whole family affair, the year they put it up without me caused the biggest hissy fit known to man. They won’t make that mistake again.
Have you put your Christmas tree up?
