Decorating the Christmas tree is one of my favorite holiday season activities. Phil and I blast all the hits – the Home Alone version of “White Christmas,” Josh Groban’s “O Holy Night,” and the entire Michael Buble Christmas album, to name a few – and reminisce over where each ornament came from before tacking it up on a limb. Inevitably I wind up covered head-to-toe in glitter from the sparkly ribbon, which is actually a good look. The next time you're getting ready for a holiday party, rub some sparkly ribbon on yourself for extra panache.
This year's tree just might be our best effort yet. Look at that ribbon...swoon. Despite its massiveness, this big daddy tree is chockablock with ornaments. Every year, Phil and I give each other a special ornament on Christmas Eve (cute, right?), some of which are pictured below. I also have a thing for bird ornaments. Go figure.
