This Christmas a bit different than most. We celebrated about a week after, didn’t have a tree, and opened gifts in the kitchen. With my parents kitchen getting remodeled it threw wrench in the festivities. So what did we do? We rolled with it. One of my coworkers brought me a little table top tree and decorations. Since the living room had most of the kitchen items in it, we opened gifts in the half remodeled kitchen. It worked well actually.
Some things that this Christmas made me reflect on were: cutting down and decorating a tree really makes it feel like Christmas and that you don’t need all the cute, fun decorations to enjoy the day. All you need is your family….and a fresh cut tree. This year, we will have both.
