To put up the tree, or not … that is the question

Dec 9, 2008 by

Usually I get the tree put up the day after Thanksgiving. This year, however, I’m feeling kind of non-Christmasy. We’re not really doing anything for Christmas. We convinced ourselves not to buy anything big, and then, due to a random draw of a slip of paper, we decided to spend the money we would spend on Christmas presents on buying food for one of the local food banks.

So, if we put up the tree, it will be just Joel and I looking at it (well, the cats like it too).

I like to look at the tree, but do I really want to go through the effort to set it up and take it down?

    Yes! We are going back to Illinois for Christmas so it won’t get a lot of “viewing”, but I still enjoy seeing it.
