Countdown to Christmas Day 4: Trim the Tree!

Posted by   + Show Post

Do you have a certain style for decorating your Christmas tree? Decorate your tree as a family and add all your ornaments and trimmings!

There are so many special ornaments you can add to your tree, from capturing this year's special events to starting an annual tradition. These keepsake ornaments would be a great addition to your family's tree!

When do you usually put up your Christmas tree? Is it a real or an artificial tree? Do you get your kids special ornaments each year?

We usually put our tree up the weekend after Thanksgiving.  Its a fake tree, I love real ones, but fake are just easier!  we don't do special ornaments every year.  I think I was going to do that, but stopped after getting them a first Christmas ornament.  I guess I could always start again!

Our tradition is to put the xmas tree up on the wkd of Thanksiving and never gotten the real tree. I think its too much of a hassel and the smell gets to me after a while We do put up the homemade ornaments and adding more every year as kids gets older and it gets creative. :)

We usually put ours up the weekend after Thanksgiving or December 1st if it falls on a weekend. Its always real, I had an artificial tree for a few years but prefer real. I get my son a special ornament each year and have all of mine from the past 26 years. I haven't gotten myself one this year and don't know if I want to.... That's what our ornaments consist of but this year we've combined families so everything is changing.

I wish that I'd thought about the special ornaments when they were small.  After a friend got married, for their first Christmas my friend's parents gave them my friend's collection of special Christmas ornaments that they'd gotten since her birth.
