Once the Christmas tree is up at Rockefeller Center, preparations at home begin in earnest.
Marders has their tree selection neatly arranged with statuary scattered throughout.
Inside, the ornaments remind you to stay focused on the job at hand.
I dragged our tree out of its basement box and set it up yesterday. After years of the tree stand and light detangling war it is easier, though less romantic, to assemble and decorate a pre-lit faux fir. I love seeing the decorations again, remembering the stories behind each ornament. My first ornaments, the gold glass balls from the local drugstore, the Christopher Radko church from my sister, the Belleek bells from Mom... Do you put up a real tree?
