Happy Holidays and Tree Decorating!

Growing up, we always had an old, dusty artificial tree that spent 50 weeks of the year in the attic, and my mom and I listened to 1980s and early 1990s Mannheim Steamroller albums while we decorated the faux tree.  Now, I like to get a live tree up as soon as possible!  I decorated my tree this past weekend (with help from a few friends) with plum and gold ornaments, while listening to the '80s/'90s MS albums.  What are your special tree-decorating traditions?

Your tree is gorgeous! I love real trees so much. You just can't get the smell without it. :-)

Thanks Mere! I agree, a fresh, live tree smells divine!
