How do you decorate your Christmas tree? When I was younger, my parents would hang the lights and then we would decorate the tree with the ornaments my brother and received from my out of state uncle. As I’m the older sibling I had more ornaments and continued to recieve one until I was 18. After these ornaments were done, we’d hang our other ornaments (usually ones we made in school) Then my parents would do all the finishing touches and make sure there were no ornament clumps.
Snow. Love it or dread it? I’m one of those people that wants snow for Christmas. Other wise, it can go away.
