I’m not the Christmas-y kind of guy. I love the season – it’s reminiscent of my childhood – but don’t care about the syrupy “holiday” of it. I’m not religious so that part doesn’t do anything for me, at all. I don’t care about all the “decorating” that The BCPF loves to do. Just not a fan. Bah, humbug and all that.
That being said, The BCPF and I have done some sort of tree all the time we’ve been together. She makes the house fun and nice for the holidays, all while keeping my opinions about such things in mind. This, the first year we’ve actually been Mr. & Mrs., has been pretty cool. We collect ornaments from the places we go to, be it Walt Disney World or Europe, etc. We do like to do that kind of stuff so I guess I’m not that humbuggy.
The day we got married, we went into Edinburgh to look for some souvenirs for family. We came across a Christmas store. My mother loves Christmas stuff (she has an entire village in her house) so we were going to find her something Christmasy to bring back. We told the lady who owned and operated the establishment that we got married only a few hours before and she made us (wrote on it with Sharpie) a “Just Married” ornament.
Yesterday, The BCPF, 3B and I did our trimming and I must say, it was low key, fun. Just doing it together was great. I’m going to also venture out to say that I was happy with the results and it’s a pretty tree (at least to us). I will show some pics, now, I guess.
So, until tomorrow, same blog channel…
