I love Christmas. I’m not as over the top crazy about it anymore, but it’s still one of my favorites.
One of my favorite things about Christmas when I was little, was the fresh tree we would get. We didn’t ever have a lot where you could go chop down your own, but they still smelled wonderful. When we moved to Nebraska, we lived in a camper for over two years until we could get a house and we only had room for a tiny fake tree. Now we have a small house and it’s our second Christmas in it and we are still using the fake tree.
This is not the best picture but you get the idea. It has two sets of lights because my dad and I like the colored ones, and my mom likes the white ones. So when I was putting it up I just put them both on. 😄
I also loved the snow when I was little and I could do nothing but play in it all day long and ignor my schoolwork. Now when I have to wade through it and do chores, thaw out hydrants, and put loose cows back in in -30 degree windchill… not so much.
However, there is one MAJOR benefit when it’s so cold outside that the furnace can’t keep the house as toasty warm. ALL THE SPIDERS ARE DEAD!!!! I hate hate hate spiders, ants, bees, wasps, and anything that stings or is as creepy as spiders.
