Iíd like to share my Christmas tree, but Iím a little embarrassed and a little humbled by all the professional talent here.

Iíve been looking at everybodyís Christmas decorations and I can see there are a lot of very artistic and real gifted people here.

Just wanted to say everything looks so good. :hopxmas:

It just occurred to me that I should clarify my statement. My Christmas display is huge with stuff collected over 30 years, but mine doesnít have that designer quality that I see here. :elf1:

I just have a thing for red and green lights. I guess itís just something from my childhood because I never could get over Christmas lights being anything other than red & green. My daughter went with all white lights and it looks beautiful, but to me itís missing something.

We used to always have real trees and my wife is always saying she misses the smell of a fresh tree, but I donít have the strength anymore to pick it up. Plus itís such a job to set up our display that I want it up for a while so I can enjoy it and not have to worry about it drying out.

Designer quality? Who cares? We love Christmas and that's what makes us gather here. Everyone gets to express their love of Christmas in their own way!

I love real trees, but there comes a time in everyone's life when it's just too much work. I finally got a tall artificial tree about five years ago and gave it away in 2010 because it was too much work.

:merrychristmas: Post your pictures and don't be embarrassed!

I have to run off to work and don’t have time to find my photos, but here is a Christmas video. its 10 min long and takes a while to load, so you really need to let it load before playing, because it stops and goes too much.

Decided to delete the video because its too long, I'm in the process of redoing it sorry

Very nice Sleeper :)

It is all about the Christmas spirit here :)
I love any and all Christmas trees and decorations ( ok maybe those upside down trees, not so much :) )

From the couple videos of yours that I've seen, Sleeper, I'd say your decorations are among my favorites on this forum.

Thanks for the kind words. I really do try and I spend a lot of time on it. I used to do have the whole house full of decorations including the outside, but as it became more difficult for me to walk around the roof and climb the trees I started focusing more on the Christmas tree display although we still have some lights outside. It was always about the kids and now most of the neighborhood kids are grown up and have moved on, its not so much fun anymore for the outside lights.

I love your yard! I'm a great-grandmother now and last night my DH and I drove around several neighborhoods looking at lights.

Thanks for the complements :santasmile:

Well you might also like my Santa and his reindeer. One of my neighbors Ēthe artistĒ absolutely hated it because it was blown plastic and said it just wasnít very artistic, but I saw her in the yard once having her picture taken with her niece. LOL
