The fact that Peter and I are now sharing our house with three cats… with bonus points given to the fact that two of those cats are barely a year old and still very kittenish… PLUS the fact that we’ll actually be spending Christmas Day elsewhere… led us fairly quickly and easily to the choice NOT to put up our Christmas tree this year.
I know it was a smart decision, but I’m still rather sad about it, as getting our home ready for Christmas is one of my favourite parts of the holiday season. But we’ll do it again! We’ll try it next year, anchored with plenty of fishing line and using only non-breakable ornaments, and hope for the best.
In the meantime, here’s a photo of last year’s tree – a memory of Christmas past, and a hope for Christmas future.
