We only got our tree up a few days ago. But it was well worth the wait. It doesn’t feel like Christmas until the tree is up.
I hope that you and yours have the happiest of holidays!
Christmas was close at hand, in all his bluff and hearty honesty; it was the season of hospitality, merriment, and open-heartedness; the old year was preparing, like an ancient philosopher, to call his friends around him, and amidst the sound of feasting and revelry to pass gently and calmly away. ~ The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens
