Many….many years ago I started a family tradition while living in New Orleans. My in-laws were coming for a visit. They arrived several days after the New Year and I was so happy with the way our Christmas tree looked I left it up for them to enjoy.
While having coffee one morning my Mother in-law commented on how nice the tree looked. I was very pleased with my decorating skills and suggested that perhaps I would leave it up all year round. How fun it would be to decorate for each holiday. She happily agreed and the tradition began. Each holiday or season the tree gets a fresh look!
The year round tree is and has been fun. I downsized to this small one when moving back to Main Street, USA but it is the perfect size and has been moved several places over the years. I have really enjoyed the many different decorations all the kids have come up with over the years. But most of all I have enjoyed the fact that it puts a smile on everyone’s face.
A little bit of Joy all year long! Merry July to one all.
