Christmas Trees & Books

on December 10, 2015

Last weekend we decorated the house inside and out for the Christmas holidays. Lights, trees, nutcrackers, Nativity set – the whole works.



And I was reminded how one of my favorite things to do at this time of year is snuggle up on the couch beside the tree and read a book. Many years there is snow outside but it’s toasty warm inside, on my couch. The only thing missing is a roaring fire in the fireplace:) Maybe someday.


This year we put white lights that blink with solid colored lights on a green tree. Some years we use the white tree and keep the color scheme either reds or blues. We have to use artificial trees because we have a cat and the sap water of a real tree is toxic to cats.

So what do you use – real or artificial? Solid lights or blinking lights?

Do you like to read Christmas-themed books during the holidays?

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

  2. Lovely tree Diane, we’re intending to get ours up this weekend coming, my daughter wanted a real one so we said yes even though we have an artificial one in the garage. We’re home this Christmas so might as well make the house as festive as possible… 🙂
