getting in the spirit

December 17, 2011

I’m not a big Christmas music person. I don’t wear red and green or holiday sweatshirts. I don’t fill the house with garlands of pine or popcorn or lights.

But I do make Christmas trees from recycling, and put presents under them.

Starting to feel like the holidays

I started making a temporary DIY “tree” three years ago to help celebrate the holidays. Kasy and I don’t really buy into the whole cut tree thing and we don’t have a backyard that has room to plant any potted trees, but we still wanted to get the house all festive. This year’s tree was made from a Long Trail beer box and has yarn garlands around it. We’ve started to put our presents (wrapped in recycling) under the tree as well and I’m making a mental list of all the cookies I want to bake this week.

Stockings have been hung and the house is tidy and warm. And the radio even said we might get flurries in the morning!!

    I think putting up decorations is one of the most fun things about Christmastime!
