The first or second week of December, we get our Christmas Tree.
When it's ready, we bring inside.
Dad strings the lights, and then the rest of us put all the ornaments on it.
Our ornaments are all very different.
Some are from when my mom was growing up, some are homemade, some have been gifts, but most of them are ornaments that our god-parents send us every year. As you can imagine there are several boxes worth. The tree is always topped with a big gold star.
We have plain tree skirt that goes around the tree. We cut off all the low branches and have a giant nativity scene that goes under the tree.
