|Here we go|
The malls are all decked out in Christmas fashion. The traditional huge 50 foot tree, the dazzling lights and the not so subtle Christmas SALE does the mood for the big day.
|It looks like hard work|
First off, we had to place all the stalks in place. The stalks are colour coded, so putting them on the tree its a breeze
We did our best to help out. But given our height limitation , the above is all we could do. Daddy had to finished up putting the whole tree in place.
We are most exciting by decorating the tree.
The first item to be on the tree is the lights. From experience, placing the lights first is a must. If it was to be place later, the other decorations will be in the way.
We started off by placing our Merry Christmas sign (which we got from a log cake some years ago) and some angels.
|Acorns and angels|
As a tradition, the star goes up last on the tree. The star signifies the Star of Bethlehem or Christmas Star that lead the shepherds to baby Jesus at the manger.
Our tree was done up in about an hour. We would most likely keep the tree there till year end.
