Oh Christmas Tree
Oh Christmas tree, how are thy leaves so absent?
We are headed home this year, which means that there is no Christmas tree in Mr. and Mrs. Big's house. (Enter sad expression here). My poor husband, he would have done better to just give in to a tree. It's just difficult to get into the holiday spirit without some decorations. Especially when you live on a small Caribbean island with limited resources.
So I've given you all a glimpse of my attempt (please feel free to laugh out loud). It started out on a Saturday afternoon with a goal to introduce some holiday cheer through a combination of silver, white and clear decorations. It turned out to be an ornament park on our dinner table accentuated with twinkling palm fronds. We'll be eating glitter for the next twelve months, but hey, we have a bit of holiday cheer, right?
At this point, I suppose it's useful to remember that there is always next year....
