Getting ready to decorate the tree. Smile
Old silver coated ornaments, which were handed down from from our grandparents), some ornaments we bought and which have a special memory,for the children handmade wooden toys and a special chocolate in the branches just above the floor. Real candles, and my Snowman, which glows in the dark.

Today I read about a scientific project. They put a tree in a CT. Smile

We have a really really nice tree this year (we always get a live tree, with varied success). It's little (5 '?) and very very full and smells wonderful and the very nice guy at the tree place chopped off several of the bottom branches for me when I told him I planned to do it at home, saving me a lot of trouble, and those have become wreaths and various decorations (like "bouquets" in a victorian red and gold cut glass sugar and creamer set I have, etc.)

Anyway, the tree is so nice all by itself that we haven't decorated it yet. Exclamation I plan to make cookie decorations today with the sozlet, from a recipe in the NYT by Nigella Lawson which includes a generous amount of pepper -- perfectly edible but not palatable for the kiddies. We have lots of delicate glass ornaments that we won't be putting up this year because she's a little monkey and I just don't want to have to worry about it. Will put up some of the non-breakables above her reach, though, and then just let her mess around with the cookie ornaments. (Take them off, put them back, etc.)

What christmas tree? We haven't put up or bought a christmas tree in about 25 years, because our children are all grown up, and we don't get that many visitors during the christmas holiday. Our primary holiday is New Year's Day, and we'll get about 25 people to visit us. Then, during the month of January, we host our annual White Elephant Party at our house. This year, it's going to be on January 11. We're expecting about 16 people. c.i.

Walter, You're pretty close. We gift wrap presents that have never been used, and put them in big shopping bags. We put numbers on the shopping bags, and the person with the lowest number picks first. Number one is the best number, because they also get the last pick. If a person likes something somebody else already picked, they are allowed to 'take away' that gift, but it's limited to three times. We also have a 'routine' gift that is included every year. A very ugly, wood driftwood, shaped like a man's appendage. As you can imagine, we all get a good laugh when somebody picks that 'gift.' c.i.
