Deck the Tree

"Christmas time is here again" so goes The Beatles song. The advent of Christmas is welcomed by preparations days ahead; sometimes it begins mid or late November. Shopping malls will start to featurethe Christmas decorations as their main display. Neighborhoods will light up their shimmering series bulbs. Churches will prepare advent candles and wreaths. Homes will deck their halls with traditional and memorable ornaments. 


All of these ornaments which adorn family homes, streets, and buildings add festivity to the joyous occasion. The Christmas balls, the ribbons, the candles, the tree topper, etc. each hold memories and are most likely part of a family tradition. Ours has been the Christmas tree. We have a (not real) tree for three years now ever since our old one is damaged from a flood that hit our neighborhood. The first year, it is adorned in gold; it is silver and gold on the second year; then, this year it's purple, gold, and silver. I don't know what color I'll fancy next year , but one thing is certain - our Christmas tree is a yearly work in progress. Every time I put up the tree, I have memories of our Christmas past. I have fond memories of my sister helping me at one point or another to put up the tree, gathering around the Christmas tree for photo taking, piling gifts under the Christmas tree, and many many more. I don't tire of putting up and taking down the Christmas tree and the ornaments. I find joy decking up our humble tree for the season. 

On a side note, Mortal Muses is musing about Ornaments today, head on over there for wonderful stories.
