Because I saw a Christmas tree on display this weekend, and just because I thought of it on the bus this morning…
How do you decorate your tree for Christmas (or what do you do if you celebrate Christmas but don’t do a tree?). Are you steady-light or blinking-light kind of people? Angel or Star? White lights or colored lights? Glass balls or little figurine ornaments?
Thankfully, my wife and I are both steady-light-with-angel kind of people. We differ on white/colored lights. I think white lights look too “store display” for a home, she thinks their classy. So far I’m winning but I’m going to have to give in and we’ll have an all-white-light tree soon, I’m sure. I’d like more shiny glass balls on the tree but the wife likes the little Hallmark-style little-mouse-wrapping-presents kind of ornaments so we have a bunch of them.
Personally, I think 10% of all divorces would be avoided if we just sorted all this stuff out beforehand.
