Oh Christmas tree, thy leaves are so unchanging…
The funny thing is, if I don’t initiate setting the tree up, no one else in my family will do it. Last week, I set my laziness aside and recruited my bro to help me put it up. Since I’m still in the holiday spirit, I thought I’d share a few snaps of our Christmas tree! Below are some of my favorite ornaments:
“Wow, that’s a shoddy ornament,” you might be thinking. But the real sentimental value is revealed on the back:
That’s right. I made this waaay back in kindergarten! Probably with lots of help from my teacher!
Below is another sentimental one because it was hand-made. I to this day have no idea how I successfully made this thing in sixth grade. I’m a good follower-of-instructions, I guess.
And a few ornaments that I like for purely aesthetic reasons:
While many top off their tree with a star, I’d like think we’re more original than that:
Found her in Garden Ridge one year, saw how beautiful she was, and somehow convinced my mom to get her (it’s really hard to convince my mom to buy trivial things sometimes, but it seemed that she agreed with me).
One of my favorite things about Christmas is the cheerful, color ambience and eating a variety of food at the Asian potluck parties that I usually go to. Like, food that’s too complicated to make on my own during school so I savor the once-a-year feasting…
What are your holiday traditions? Do you celebrate Christmas or other holidays this time of the year?
Thanks for reading, and Merry Christmas!
