Christmas Tree

Today I put up my Christmas tree. Is there anything wrong with putting up your tree the day after Thanksgiving? I had the day off and had plenty of time to do it so I thought I would get one more thing done by doing it today. A good friend of mine commented on how early it was to put up my Christmas tree. I told him I wanted to do it while I felt in the mood. If you know me at all, you know I'll take it down the day after Christmas. What sucks about having a tree in the first place is that there won't be any presents under it. Years ago my family decided to only get gifts for the grand children. Well, I don't have any children (and won't) so there won't be any presents under my tree. And since I was recently let go by my most recent boyfriend, I won't be getting any presents from him either. I'll have to tell you about him sometime. He's got some problems that he's dealing with and doesn't feel as if being in a relationship is something he can deal with at this time. Besides the fact that he's 1300 miles away doesn't help. He says that's what is breaking us up but I have my doubts. In any case, I will respect his decision and move on. Anyway, I put up my tree today and I think it looks pretty good. I will enjoy the warm feelings I get when looking at the tree all lit up while listening to Christmas music.

Look At Things

Take a minute to look at things differently. It might change your world.

Did you know there were 102 pilgrims on the Mayflower? Did you know it was 1620 when they came to America? Also, did you know that today is Marc Brown's birthday? He's the creater of the Arthur series of books and TV shows on PBS.
