Since the neighbors talk about us already, I thought this might be the year to go ahead and put up a second Christmas tree. The regular tree is very traditional, dark green, adorned with ornaments purchased or received from friends over the years. It always give me great pleasure to decorate, since virtually every decoration has a story behind it. This tree, in the little sitting room near the kitchen, is solely for fun!
There are very few folks who appreciate a white Christmas tree, particularly since Liberace and my grandmother ("People who call it gaudy are just jealous") have both passed on. I've always thought a white tree was just too frou frou, but when they had them in clearance at Walmart last January for $10, it was too good a deal to pass up.
I considered Christopher Radko, but there is something just WRONG about putting an ornament on your tree that costs more than the tree itself. As a result, this little tree is decorated with disco-colored ornaments and aqua glittered branches. I'm not sure this tree will become an annual tradition, but for now we're having great fun coming with it!
