1. What is your favorite ornament on your Christmas Tree?

2. Do you decorate at work (or you s.o. if you don't work)?

3. Are you done shopping?

<<No, where did I say that? I said you learn something everyday. Where did that pertain to the navity scene and the lighting of advent candles respresenting Christimas?>>

In your post, that I quoted...those were the three things I talked about in my post, was your comment not directed at what I said in my comments?

<<But not their own tree, in their own home, correct? I guess you don't find that an important part of Christmas anymore. Is it because they don't believe in Santa? Why did you stop the family tradition?>>

No actually, they were family trees and they even put ornaments that belong to them on those trees, it just wasn't physically in our house.  Why would you guess such a strange thing when I haven't said any such thing?   It has nothing to do with Santa, as I explained in an earlier post and I didn't stop a family tradition.  Where did you get that strange idea as well?

Well, now you are just making up stuff.  Why would you make up such a lie about my kids?

I find it really odd to create such a lie about my kids,

<<It should be a huge deal for parents to make memories. >> - Agreed. Nothing in PKA's post indicates she doesn't also agree.

So you wouldn't have a tree while your kids lived in your home? Would you give up those memories?

<<You have a tree, correct? >> Yes, I have a tree.

And you would give up that memory with your children too?

<<Don't you think you would miss the memories you have had with your kids with your tree and decorating with ornaments?>> - If I never had that experience/memory? Yes, I would miss it.  If I have that 10-12 times instead of 18-20?  Not even a blip on my radar.

So your memories are exactly the SAME every.single.year?

Are you speaking from experience or just making up things about my children's lives?

Oh, some of the years I've not had a tree it was out of what could be considered laziness.  But then, I often choose to allocate my time to the important things first ... and sometimes a tree just isn't as important as other things. 

You didn't have a tree when you had kids? How old were they?

Did you miss that fact that we have already done two trees or are you skipping over all facts and just going straight to lies today?

Nope, it wasn't. Sorry.
