When you put up your christmas decorations? Do you just put up a modist tree and some nice subtle decorations,or do you go to town and cover the front of your house with flashing lights,that dim the streets lights when you plug them in? I just like a nice tree with subtle soft lights in the corner,a few simple but affective lights in the tree outside our front door,and nice sparkly trimmings here and there? you guys?
I leave all that stuff until the last possible minute, put up just a little bit here and there. Stick the cards around the fireplace. (No fire, central heating). Grandchildren put up the Christmas tree and have done since they were about four and six years old, messy but all their own work. I prepare all the veg. and wash all the utensils/dishes etc. on Christmas Day, my wife (the boss) does all the cooking. and as soon as Boxing Day is over, down come all the deccies and back into the attic they go again. Can't wait to get back to normal routine. (Proper Scrooge) All the family and I have a really good time though, honest!! ..Bingalau..
