These last couple of days i've been putting up Christmas decorations.
Had a new taller artificial christmas tree that's 6ft.
Has anyone else been putting theirs up?

The garland is new had it free with the tree.
The decs are old had them on the tree a few years ago but wanted something different for the tree. They've been in a box wondering what to do with them, didn't want to throw them away.

We don't do a lot with decorations, apart from the hall. Neither do we bother with a Christmas tree, just string up all the cards.

As most of the houses in our road have similar front doors several of our neighbours have lights like ours.

That plant pot you can see in "mid air" is one of two we have hanging on chains from the ceiling above the staircase

But my wife increases the number of candle she has around the house both scented and those like these, battery powered and remote controlled. (We've had that gas fire for sixteen years, it only gets turned on for testing when we have the combi in the kitchen checked).
My wife insisted on having it when we had the new central heating which replaced a gas fire with a back boiler in the same position, "in case it broke down."
She designed the Art Deco fire surround.

Then there's our lights on the pergolas in the garden. The red berry lights are on every night all year round.

I don't do a Christmas Tree. just us. too much bother.
I used to have a full-sized fake tree that was a pain in the butt to put up. Got tired of doing that. Now, it's easy. 4' fake tree that doesn't have to be assembled/disassembled every year. Lights stay on it, so all I do is set it in place, wrap a little garland around it, and ornaments are the best part. Whole thing takes about 10 minutes. :)
