    Bit too early in my house to put trimmings up as I have to move lots of things out the way to have a tree. I dont bother with ceiling trimmings either as I find they make the rooms look dreary. I'm just an old humbug at heart. Plus this year I lost my tree decorator as my daughter moved out. I suppose I could get my granddaughter to help :p

    Have a good day putting yours up

    Well we have a good arrangement throughout the year .. caring for each other , just good neighbors
    Bins plants cats .. so we just buy at Christmas , not throughout the year ..
    It works well .. as we both do fun stockings for each other :)

    Hi friends.
    Not a thing about Christmas in Spain,It dosent start until Christmas eve,then goes on for two weeks.
    My tree is decorated and ready in the garage but wont come out until Christmas eve,so its a change to not be governed by retail.

    We have a tree £6.99 from Lidl. Two and a half feet tall and in a pot. Bought some tree lights just to put on the tree. Don't think my stock of bauble will fit the little thing! 2 days down and 23 to go!
