*blows off dust*
What even is this year?

Anyway, tree's up, only about 10 days after I'd intended.

I'm now going to see if I can find the original (and only as far as I'm concerned) How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and eat the first Mandarin orange of the season.

Hope the rest of you have been keeping as well as you can. I may or may not sing at you this year, but either way, not tonight.

We always put up our tree on the third Sunday of Advent, Gaudete Sunday. But this year, that was only a week before we were leaving town, so we put it up on the Saturday of the second Sunday weekend, more than a full week early!

Yet somehow, we still haven't managed to get that last shoebox full of ornaments on the tree. They're in the same room with the tree, still wrapped in tissue paper. We haven't managed to put them on the tree.

There is only one Grinch; anything else is just an illusion (delusion?).

I rarely use all the ornaments I have (a 1 foot tall tree can't handle much) but very few of them are special memory ornaments.

My sister, the one who passed away, used to make christmas ornaments out of styrofoam balls and pinned cloth, and they are about half the size of my whole tree. She gave one to each family member, and they are now collected at mom's place, and instead of putting them on the tree, she will hang them from garlands stretched across the living room window or something like that. It' really nice to have the special ornaments there, even if they aren't on the tree itself.

The garland is a great idea!
