By this time we had an artificial tree (as much as I love the scent of pine, I was fearful of fires and there were allergies to deal with). I haven't had a tree since then but love looking at ornaments, decorations and other accoutrement's of the season. I prefer to gift and celebrate birthdays or "just because" days as I think the Christmas season is so out of whack in recent years---come on---decorations in the stores in June? Christmas in July sales? I don't like that peace and joy and love have taken a back seat to greed-so I no longer celebrate it.
But I still make cards-and give my kids a check to do what they want with it. This year there is a new member to the family as my son got married. Johanna is a beauty so I will have to make a pretty card for her too. Unless she likes Charlie Brown trees !
