Is there such a rule that states a person should not put up a christmas tree in the house 4 weeks before christmas day?
Well I hope not!
Because I just set mine up a few days ago! =)
hehe...I have been looking for the so-called "perfect" tree a few weeks ago...well, to be honest, ever since I saw christmas decos in the shopping malls. I thought about getting a nice lovely black tree, rather than the traditional green one.
So I went hunting, you know, whenever I went out for a little shopping spree. Finally, I found the perfect tree! I am sure everyone would agree that you can get almost anything from Argos. Yeap, I stopped by Argos last weekend, and looked through their christmas catalogue.....and hold and behold, I saw a tree that I liked.
It was a 6 foot tall ash black xmas tree.....the fact that it was discounted, made it even more attractive. So I purchased it without much thoughts. I also bought new white LED lights to match it.
When I got home, I could not wait to put it up.... (I know, it is pretty pathetic). To be honest, I am sucker for things like this. I like to see nice little things in the flat, I like to feel all christmassy....I mean, it is only once a year...so I might as well enjoy it to the max. hehe.
Anywho, with some help from Kevin, my brand new tree is all set up! There are a mix of red, gold and purple baubles. It looks absolutely lovely! It is so therapeutic just looking at it, especially when the white lights flash around. I actually look forward to turning on the lights when I get home from a tiring day at work. All I need now is to get a few christmas pressies to put under the tree.
It is amazing how simple things in life can just make it so much more colourful.
