Real or synthetic tree?Page 1 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
Last leaves are falling and already can't stand the Jingle bells after a second re-run....

I could pretend that I am a tree hugger and say that I think everyone should own a fake one like I do...but in reality I'm too lazy to worry about taking care of a real tree. I'll be pulling out the synthetic in a couple of weeks.
I work at a place where we have had Christmas trees on display since August, so I'm not feeling the x-mas love just yet.

Considering the fact that we are going to "grandma and grampa's". I plan to do as little decorating as possible

I have fiber-optic and other artificial trees, I usually put up.

I have to comment on the christmas tunes.



I hate them! I'm sorry. I'm not a Scrooge. Christmas is my favorite time of year after Halloween. But seriously, Christmas music at the beginning of November?! I'm already sick of the damn music! I could understand Christmas music starting December 1; but November 1?! Madness!

Humbug.....

Last few yrs I've taken a stand......
No more wasting electricty on lights.....
No more killing of innocent trees.....
No more feeding Hallmark.......
No more feeding Canada Post......
No more blowing the budget on presents......
No more fighting for stupid undersized parking spots.....
No more standing in disgusting till line ups......

No, I'm not a grinch.....
It's taken a long time to realize Christmas is for giving, not material things as the television, marketers, advertizers have TOLD us what it is.....
It's for giving of ones self, spending time with family, friends, good food and enjoying the extra time off......
A tradition that somehow has gotten lost in the shuffle...............

Besides.......Don't cha just love the after Christmas deals??...............

are you gonna dust off the old synthetic one hidden in the closets?


i'm gonna dig out the same one as last yr down in the weight room under the stairs..

i don't think i'll do the big display outside this yr...
it's way to much work and i just don't have the time or the inclination..

they probably wouldn't last long in the yard this year..
without the fence around the front yard anymore....

since the city informed me that my fence was 25 ft out on city property....
i had the time barley to take it all down ...but very little time to get it back up..

such a big job to move $$$ the electric gate opener back then .....
recement it back in place and then cement the fence posts $$$......

i really like the christmas tunes and i don't think nov. 1st is to early to start them..
it's almost time to dig the tree out...

christmas can bring out the best.. in the worst...sometimes..
i'm trying to teach my little guy that christmas isn't just presents...

it's the feeling you have for your family and friends at this time of yr ..
christmas isn't what's under your tree it's what's in your heart...

^^^under my fake tree this year, is going to be a lot less presents...and more things to do...
we're doing the Christmas train this year...first time, since I was a kid...
doing the Carole ships, first time in years...and hang with our friends...when we have time.
But things are gonna change this year...
new job....
no time...
ya, more money...but I have too many things too do...

so...family, friends and peace.

the music...well, if it's by a new artist...........

dam, we need new xmas music!

My beautiful fake tree will come out of the closet the first weekend of December, and go back in New Year's Day. That's more than enough time.

I don't have to worry about kidnapping a defenseless tree from its natural habitat, bringing it to my house, cleaning sap and muck evidence out of my car, trying to find a way to keep it restrained, keep it watered, vacuum up needles every 3 hours, and then callously dispose of the carcass once it's served it's purpose.

There will be no 'erected' discussions, either, ML1....

Only 2 more paycheques until Christmas.

Well, it is almost the same old time of year when we discuss whether Santa should say, "Ho, ho, ho" or not.

Trees - well I don't think people should chop them down.

I'm going ALLLLLLLLLL out again this year!! Gonna drag that synthetic tree out of the storage room, add a gazilion lights, a few boxes of tinsel, all the bells and whistles...lol. I LOVE to decorate at Christmastime and, much to my kid's dismay, I'll start cranking the Christmas tunes December 1st!

Don't have a tree, (real or fake) I'd have a real hard time dressing it up from my vantage point, lol. So I think I'll just stick to some festive lighting around the front doorway. Simple, easy, and still festive. But not doing somthing like that till the end of Nov/Begining of Dec. And then bring it all down again at the end of the first week of the New Year.
