Here it is acceptable for Christmas decorating to start once Santa has arrived as part of the Christmas Pageant.
Santa took up residence at the Magic Cave on Saturday, so it's decorating time!
Our new tree went up while watching the live broadcast, along with some other nick-knacks around the house. I decided to treat myself to a new tree this year. I've had an older 6 foot tree for years, but wanted something new.
I went with a 7 foot tree, with glitter on the end of the branches. This was somewhat of a mistake as the glitter is going EVERYWHERE. But I like the overall height and look.
I also bought a new decorating item I'd seen a couple of years ago on the internet - a Yuleahoop.* It's worked really well for hanging the bead and my very fat tinsel on the tree.
Having gone from a six footer to a seven footer, it's a bit sparse for my liking. But J is probably going to start bringing home decorations he makes himself, so I should probably leave room for them...
*I did not receive a yuleahoop to trial, and the opinions are my own. I will say that the company gave me excellent customer service while we negotiated international shipping.
