The tree is an artificial one my parent's got back in the 1970's. They decided to downsize to a smaller tabletop fiberoptic tree, so I asked if I could keep it. Aside from the family history of the tree, one of the things I really love about it is the branches are spaced out rather than clumped together into solid wall of green. I call it my "Charlie Brown" Christmas tree. :D 1st time setting it up in my 1st apartment as well (just moved out 5 months ago). The 2nd pic is a bit blurry, I was trying to use a shutter delay, but didn't have my tripod handy. Tried bracing myself against a wall, but it didn't help. One downside to moving out: fewer presents under the tree. :(

Heres my Charlie Brown Christmas Tree, its just a little one b/c the bf is gongho on the xmas and I'm a traditional native who doesn't care for xmas.. So we've settled on a faux one.

This pic is from last year, but we put it in a plastic bag (decorated) and then just took it out of its bag and set it on the table.

Probably at Hallmark, they tend to have alot of character ornaments.

I know this is sad, but it's my first Christmas since moving out of my parents house. My GF and I both wanted a small, shabby looking tree. It reminds us that there are others who are less fortunate and of the harder times in our lives.

Yep got it for my mom for Christmas last year. They have one now that is the scene when they are at the doors of the Emerald City... LOVE IT, although it is selling out quite fast!

Do you find tinsel distracting?

Updated, Our tree. Honestly the fiber optic tree looks better. We do have a tree skirt, but it got saturated with water, so I put it in the dryer. I'll take another one with the skirt on

Just made it tonight since I'll be spending the winter break at school (don't really have an answer as to why) and thus spending my 18th birthday....alone.

Kinda sucks.

Oh, tree and ornament purchased from local 99 store. LED christmas lights are homemade--aka ripped out of miscellaneous keychains I had around the dorm.

...LED christmas lights are homemade--aka ripped out of miscellaneous keychains I had around the dorm.

That's very creative. :)

I ended up spending Christmas Eve and Day alone one year. I was recently separated and my son was spending the holiday with his father's family. I decided to make a bunch of plans for the day to make the time go by with useful and fun things to do, and then I made myself a nice dinner and watched a good movie. If I'd been completely at loose ends, I could've volunteered at one of the places where people with no family/home etc can go.

You'd be surprised, it's not all that bad to have to be alone just for the one time, and probably a good experience to have had. Just make some sort of plan.
