Christmas Trees 2018

There's been a few threads over the years of pics of our Christmas trees. Since we have so many new members, I thought it would be fun to have a place to share them again for those who are so inclined.

I have mine up. It's about 5-6 feet tall, in the usual place in front of the big window in the living room. So far it's got the little white lights wound through it which I love, plus little pinecone ornaments. I'm thinking about just leaving the simplicity of it as is and letting it be.....but not sure yet, it may change over the next few days. LOL

Does anyone else want to share pics of Christmas trees or holiday décor?

I saw that black is the new green in artificial Christmas trees.

My wife loves to decorate for Christmas. Everywhere you turn in our house she's decorated it with something Christmas-ey.

Our tree: (We can't find the lighted star, so a bow will do for now)

All the decorations are terrific Bucky, but where's the Nativity?

Wow, Bucky! I enjoyed your pics, and thank you for sharing. I used to go all out decorating multiple rooms for Christmas as well, but have scaled down over the past few years. I love seeing what others do for the holiday season, if anyone else cares to share!
