Everybody's at it. Co-ordinated trees and decorations.
I have my trusty old box of multi-coloured baubles and tinsel, that the kids deck the tree in every year, not i might add in a tidy organised manner. tinsel, ornaments and tree lights all jumbled up together.
Nowadays everything is co-ordinated. gold and silver, or blue on it's own, god forbid coloured lights, only plain white are in.
Well where's the fun in that?
Half the fun is watching the kids untangling different lengths of tinsel, argueing over who puts the battered old fairy on top.
If you are conforming and doing the trendy xmas tree thing, kids just sit and watch while you banish their homemade decorations to the garage.
I look at my tree every year and remember each year certain decorations were made. Not worry that the shade of gold isn't right.
Well I'm sticking with tradition, out come my mixture of decorations, collected over many years, and my tree fairy is adopted for life.
