Christmas Tip 'O the Day

A 10 foot REAL tree takes more ornaments than an 7-8 foot fake tree. Height, width, the whole damn thing is bigger.

This means that ornaments you've tucked away as 'dead ornaments', those you thought had been used to the extent of their Christmas ornament life expentancy or you thought you'd rather be caught dead than putting them on your tree... end up on the tree.

This also means that it takes longer to decorate and when after an hour and a half and its not finished, fully expect a child, perhaps your ADHD child to say, "Can we turn off the Christmas music now? I'm sick of it..."

Live and learn, folks. Live and learn. Heh.

You can shudder; it's okay... LOL!
