Thanks to the cookie swap coming up in one short week and availability of transport (courtesy of my sister’s & nephew’s visit this weekend by van), Xmas decorating has begun in its foetal stages. With the patience of a snail’s mother, Julie & Josh walked with us through the Eaton Centre, from one end, where Crappy Tire & Sears had their trees, to the other, where the Bay had theirs. After some discussion and waiting for help, we picked up a 7′ with pre-lit white lights for $317.33 (that’s after 25% off and tax added). The lights are displayed such that as you move around the room, they seem to flicker on their own. Quite pretty though at the moment, bare:
But why did we buy a new Xmas tree?
A note I never received at an apartment complex I no longer live at:
“[Dear Resident…We are cleaning out the basement this weekend. If you have anything stored there that you wish to keep, please remove it before Friday. Otherwise, we will consider it unwanted and dispose of it. Thank you, Management.]”
I need to get some ornaments for the tree. We’re thinking one colour, to keep some uniformity and simplicity to it. But I’m torn between aesthetics and meaningfulness. Which one is more important?
