Time for tree?
November 6, 2008
I sometimes think that you can tell a lot about someone from their Christmas tree.
If it’s made out of recyled bottles with newspaper for tinsel you can guess they are an eco warrier very proud of their guilt free tree.(just look for some form of hemp clothing for confirmation)
If they have a perfectly balanced tree, sectioned off into quadrants, each with identical amounts of lights, tinsel and little santas like some form of tree sudoku, then you might want to check you’ve wiped your feet before entering the “display” room (that’s the living room to most people).
I guess i’m making a connection with a person’s Christmas tree and the Christmas they celebrate. If it is simple and understated, then maybe their celebrations are the same. If the tree is rushed and unorganised, then maybe you’ll need a chainsaw to carve the turkey.
How many of us end up with the shadow of the barcode tree representing our christmas? The money we’ve spent hanging over our celebrations. Worrying if we’ve spent enough. Worrying if we’ve spent too much. Spending Christmas day planning our boxing day shopping mission.
What does your tree say about your Christmas?
