Saturday I put up my Christmas tree. Well, actually Mike brought the tree over and put it up for me. I decorated it, though.
I don't really celebrate Christmas. I am not Christian and now that I am single and estranged from my sister, I don't have family that celebrate it. I used to join in the celebration with Mike and his family, and with my sister and her family, but that is in the past. But I decided I wanted a tree. I like Christmas trees. I like sitting on the couch at night with the overhead light out, looking at the lighted tree. So I decided to have one. Maybe I should call it a solstice tree.
Many of my ornaments are handmade, mostly by me, although I have a couple made by my nephew in past years. Here are a few of the ones I made.
