Done




The tree is up.
We always decorate for Christmas since December, 1. The Nativity is done too but, as the tree, it has a lot to improve.

Later: I just want to share a comment I made at Mountain Moma about the spirit of Christmas at her post Simple Joys of the Season.

I wish I had snow here. We only have it in the North so, no chance for me. Some 2 or 3 years ago it snowed in Lisbon – Sintra belongs to Lisbon – and it was such a hapiness. The television programs stoped to announce that!I like Christmas so much. As here there’s no Thanksgiving, I dream about Christmas since October. Well, ok, since September but stronger since the end of October. In the day 1 we put the tree up and do the Nativity. Then everyday we improve the decorations and put the garland on the door. I wrap the presents – whatever the number, that doesn’t matter, and make lists. I plan and dream. It’s my favorite time of the year.

Hooray for having your tree up! We don't have ours in, as yet. I guess we do our decorating, "in fits and starts," as we say. :-))))

Thanks for the lovely comment Paula, I enjoyed it! My tree is up as well, but alas I have boxes everywhere. My husband shook his head at me last night and said, "you and your Christmas!".

You must be delighted we are into December and your celebrations have started. Enjoy decorating and dreaming of snow, we have had a few flakes so far but nothing serious.
