Our tree doesn't go up until 2 weeks before Christmas. Was a superstition of my nans that it goes up 12 days before Christmas and comes down no later than 1 days after. It's one I stick to. Luke has been itching to put up the tree so he was pretty pleased when todays advent car announced today was the day the tree was to be put up and decorated :o)
Lots of baubles ended up in that area Luke was decorating until I started to offer some help ;o)
And Rudolph found a new home among the branches. Candy canes are a must here. You know it's Christmas when Paul makes tea and melts the candy canes into the tea and drinks it.
