Blogmas | Day 12

Today, we finally got round to bringing the Christmas tree and all the decorations down from the loft. We usually put up the decorations and the tree around this time of the year. It’s not too early and its not too late. Plus, we have cats…and cat owners all know that cats love to climb a good-looking Christmas tree and totally ruin it’s design. EVERY SINGLE YEAR!

Decorating the tree is one of my favourite things to do at Christmas. Hanging all our beautiful baubles on its branches and covering the house in fairy lights. I love nothing more than having the tree lit in the evening, watching the TV and feeling all warm and cosy. It’s the best feeling.

As children, we would decorate the tree on a Saturday evening, whilst watching On The Buses. It was a tradition for many years. However, that tradition has changed in recent years due to growing up and each having different jobs, meaning we tend to work different hours and rarely find the time off together. This was the case this time too. I was in work, so my mum and sister put up the tree and with the help of my brother, they decorated 75% of the tree and left the rest of it to me when I came home so at least I had a little input.

Personally, I find my tree to be one of the most beautifully, decorated trees around. Our theme is always white and silver. The decorations we use are always so pretty and it leaves the house looking so cosy. I absolutely love this time of year!

What do you think?
