We put up the Christmas tree yesterday
There is something special about unpacking all the memories both personal and shared along with the decorations. Something fantastic and slightly magical about the ritual of putting them on display on the branches of a living tree. By the end of the afternoon. it felt like a primal diary or perhaps more like a totemic blog. Small thoughts, unconnected ideas and good memories that charted a warm rich and colourful history of our life as individuals and as a family. The smattering of inherited or passed on decorations linking back to other trees and other families.
You can keep your fibre-optic upside down Christmas trees. I’d rather have the homemade stars made by my daughter.
