Preparing for Christmas
November 25, 2017 8:31am CST
They've been trying to remind me to set this up over the past few days but I was not in the mood then. But since no one's around today I took the time to clean the tree. Unfortunately, I had trouble at first looking for the decorations because I forgot were to put it. Turns they were located in some unmarked box The only missing here were the lights, I forgot what happened. It's either I lost them or they short circuited for some reason and then I threw it away. I've also prepared the huge lantern but it's not yet in the picture. Sadly it has one busted bulb. How are you now preparing for Christmas?

@Letranknight2015 led lasts very very long because they are diodes not filaments like what incandecent uses, they are similar to power indicator lights of appliances, that sometimes outlasts the appliance itself. Bought mine online at Lazada but I think it is out of stock now or the price has gone up
I remember that Christmas trees when I was a child were real pine trees. Now we have to settle for made in China plastic trees. There was also a kind of religious solemnity surrounding Christmas. Today everything has become too commercialize. Sad.
When I was young, we are setting up all the decoration mostly middle of november or the week after the haloween. But as I get older, we are doing this around 2nd week of december. Maybe because people in my generation today are much practical, I guess. Even my wife agrees with it.
It's my gay brother-in-law who puts up the decoration at the house. She even bought a like disco light that when he lights it up at the front yard, he has to switch off the bright light at the garage and you can see the firefly like images of which we cannot decipher when it's at the garden. It doesn't look merry at all because it's dim. But when he tried it on the wall at the dining room, they were of small santas, reindeers and others. He rarely lights it up anymore.
