As a parent, it’s my job to raise my children with a few weird Christmas quirks. But one of them is NO white lights on the Christmas tree or on the house, please. Also a little lights=not good. A lot of lights=GOOD. My Christmas tree has 22 strands of lights (they are LED, don’t panic). This has caused a problem though because now I don’t want to buy a real tree. Who has time to string all those lights? I feel bad that my kids haven’t had a real tree in years. I really hope that the pine scent sticks I hide amongst the ornaments has fooled them.
Open up the curtains when it is snowing, turn off the lights, turn on some Christmas tunes and you will experience a little glimpse of heaven. Already my oldest has turned into a rebel and decided that she will decorate her tree with….gulp…white lights. I may have to boycott her house during December. If she doesn’t want to glimpse heaven on earth, then she will have to suffer the consequences. Ho, Ho, Ho…no Christmas presents for you...you will be on the NAUGHTY list.
