I didn't put up my tree this year. Somehow, I just wasn't in the mood. I do have a lighted garland on my mantel...but that's about it.
It's only the second time ever, that I haven't had a tree. The first, was when I loaned it to a friend, because she couldn't afford a tree. (Ugly divorce) But at least I had "visitation" with it at her house that year! lol
Yes, I have an artificial tree. It's really quite lovely, but I've been a bit "humbuggy" this year. Too much month at the end of my money...I guess. No "room at the inn" for extras.
