@Amor Vincit Omnia, that’s funny! Suprisingly, my cats over the years have never messed with my Christmas trees.

Following on from my post last night, I thought it was about time I dealt with getting my outside lights up (this morning) and Christmas Tree and Decorations up (this afternoon).

It's all pretty modest and tree is artificial with fibre optic lights.

I've had a lot of the decorations for some years, but I add to them bit by bit.

Big penguin, cuddly toy, was bought for Davie (my greyhound) last year, not that he played with it much and is no longer with us. Rudolph with the illuminated antlers is new for this year.

Happy Christmas, everyone. :santagrin: :santagrin:

After a day without rain, our now dry tree has made it inside the house. I was feeling virtuous buying a local tree with negligible air miles, then noticed it wasn’t local after all… :problem:

Mrs nbg has gone for a minimalist look. The choirboy candle in front of the pot was given to me as a child.

Yesterday evening we went around to a friend’s house for drinks and was rather taken by the tree. Something similar was on sale in one of the local shops, but was sold out by the time he went to buy one. The solution? He got up early, went to the woods on a local estate that he helps at, cut some hazel and made the tree himself.

Meanwhile in the interest of festive watch wearing research, I clocked the watches of the sixteen of us at attending…

1 Rolex, 1 Tudor, 4 that I couldn’t identify, 5 Apple Watches and 5 naked.
