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?

I didn't, you mentioned location.

    "There have been years we haven't had a tree in our home. Our memories aren't exactly the same, but close enough that it's not a big deal. And we can use that time to make completely new, different, possibly more exciting and enduring memories!

    This makes absolutely no sense."

    I'm not having any trouble deciphering it.

    Do you ever get the feeling they're more fixated on "lies"... When there's nothing else to debate, I mean seriously, Lol.

    Either that or start making fun of others or things said in the past or...or...lol

    I thought the tree was a holdover from GermanIc solstice celebrations.

    About three or four years ago we decided to start waiting until the 3rd week to put the tree up, It's the week of joy and the spirit really starts kicking in then for my family and I.  If we ever decide to buy an artificial tree we may go back to putting it up the weekend that follows Thanksgiving again... 

    Yeah when we had a real one, we would wait until 2 weeks before. Now with the fake, I usually do it right after Thanksgiving.
