O Christmas Tree

"O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure doth thou bring me!
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure doth thou bring me!"


"For every year the Christmas tree,
Brings to us all both joy and glee.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure doth thou bring me!"

We got our Christmas tree today! Isn't it beautiful? It's 100% authentic, artificial materials and it's about 2 feet tall.

Since we aren't giving Christmas presents to each other and are going to be busy for the holidays, Jeremy said that we would not be getting a tree this year (what a bah-humbug, right?!). How can you not have a Christmas tree?! Well, I eventually convinced him that we needed a tree...even a small one would do, and then I came across this little beauty at Walmart. It came with its own lights and for only $8.88 it will pay for itself in no time.

When I got home from work today, I immediately decorated our little tree, while Jeremy laughed at me, with our plethora ornaments. You'll see that we have only 5 real ornaments including: 2 I Love Lucy ones, 1 from our 1st Christmas last year, 1 from Scottsdale (thanks Mom) and a glass ball from my friend, Alli. Though it might be a bit dismal when compared to a regular Christmas tree, I think it's wonderful and I had a great time during the whole ten minutes that it took me to decorate it! :)

You're right; you have to have a Christmas tree. It's a necessity.
