I figured with Christmas Eve it would be fun to see what other people's Christmas Trees look like. Give us some extra details if you wish.



Ours is simple, other than the 2300 lights that have been hand wrapped throughout and around the individual branches. Just a simple set of light blue and silver bulbs, not even a topper.

Doesn't look like you had any room for a topper. Very beautiful tree.

Wow, Dioxide, how lovely and color coordinated - even the wrapping paper, walls, and picture on the wall!

Karen, mine usually looks more like yours, a colorful assortment of misc. decorations collected over the years. We tend to go for toys and old cars.

No tree for us this year, though, first year ever without one. One of our foster kitties LOVES to climb, and I just couldn't imagine what he'd do to a tree. Our house is too open to close him or the tree up somewhere.

Chanukah Menorah instead of a tree

Here's our menorah lit for tonight. A couple of gifts are wrapped in Christmas paper. DS flies in tomorrow to spend holidays with us and open gifts.

Here's ours, I collect ornaments made by a lady called Gladys Boalt. They are mostly of historical characters.

In this photo, you can somewhat make out Joan of Arc, King Arthur, Statue of Liberty, Merriweather Lewis (or is it Clark?), Buffalo Bill, Mozart, Cleopatra, Louis the IX, also a unicorn and a buffalo. Our tree topper is Marie Antionette.

I will try to take a photo today with the new ornaments (we opened gifts last night)- I cleaned up and got Sacagewa, Annie Oakley, George Washington, Napolean & Josephine, and a giraffe. Annie Oakleys gun is missing though and she needs to be returned.

The tree has moved from the bucket in the front yard to the living room, and all 19 boxes of decorations are down from the rafters and staged throughout the house but we're definitely not camera ready!

Since this is the timesharing board, can I use the excuse of four trips in the past eight weeks as an excuse? ;)

I loved your pictures! Great job and beautiful decorations. My tiny tree this year pales in comparison.

I took my picture with my iPhone and then it uploaded to my computer by the photostream feature. If you haven't set up photo stream (I think you might have to have an Apple computer to get that to work) I think you could send the picture to yourself via email. Then save it to your computer. Then go to photobucket or some other photo storage place to get a link to share the picture to TUG.

There is probably some other easier way to do it and, if so, I hope a computer wizard will come along to tell us how to do it.:)
