You know-- Christmas lights up and burning before Thanksgiving or after.
When I was a kid, back when the dinosaurs roamed the earth, we put our tree up Christmas Eve. No ornaments or lights.
So when we got up Christmas morning the room was filled with light and happy things like gifts with ribbons and a big something for my brother and for me.
Right now I have a 2 foot tall tree on the porch with the lights going strong. And plans for the 4 foot tree on the table again.
Pictures on Sunday.
