Just as the title says, I wanna see your Christmas trees or Holiday centerpiece! This is Christmas hardcore, without all the yahoo and commercialism.
Let's keep beliefs out of this, lots of good people don't celebrate Christmas at all. I go first. No tree this year (too messy) but I put up my Baby Jesus.

PS: I'd also like to see any Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, St. Nickolas Day, Three Kings Day, St. Lucia day, Ramadan and Festivus decorations!

I will have to add a full picture of the tree when I finish decorating it tonight but as you can see from this one, that isn't always easy with my cat Creampuff. We use only soft ornaments pretty much because every year she scales up the inside of the tree and attacks the ornaments from the inside. I find strewn teddy bears all over the house for weeks.

I really took this picture because I got my new hat and hoodie, but it shows the tree and a few decorations.

Merry Christmas one and all!

Aluminum retro. Every year I put this up with my kids with Vince Giraldi's Charlie Brown Christmas playing. Close your eyes and it could be 1964!Click on photo for larger image3702

My wife takes all the credit for this. I wouldn't dare try to intrude on her annual ritual.

OMG, I had one of these (with the colour wheel) back in 1967 or so! I sorta even miss it! But this year we have a fiber optic tree--I'm gonna do a music video with it soon.

Like all those gorgeous ukes surrounding it!!!

Of course I have the color wheel. You cant have one without the other, especially since you can't put lights on the tree. Don't want to burn the house down. Looking forward to seeing your tree and video.
P.S. Those are Red Sox candy canes

I'll be putting the video up in a day or so. I did the video portion tonight, but my camera doesn't do as well as I'd like in low light. Well, it does for still pics, but not movies. And the various colours of the lights don't show up--it just looks like waves of white lights. Pretty, but not as gorgeous as it really is in total darkness.

I couldn't see the Red Sox candy canes. You mean on your tree?

Here is our little table-top fiber optic tree (first we've ever had, new this year).

And here is a link to the video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fgoSsI6hJ8

The colours on the lights are multi-coloured and look so much more beautiful in person. My camera just doesn't do movies very well in low light. :(

CountryMouse

P.S. How do you-all have other ways of doing images? Sukie, I didn't see your Christmas tree pic in an album on your profile page--how did you do that?

P.P.S. Editing to try the attachment thingee here, to have a smaller pic--thank you, Papa Dave, for telling me how to do this! :)

My tree is here in the Yopp Family Christmas (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l__pZqJuzaA) video. We go to a tree farm down the road every year and let the kids cut one down. The kids always want a 15 footer, I tree to keep it under 10.

Merry Christmas to all my UU family.

I can take no credit for this lovely tree. It is all my wife's work!
http://ukuleleunderground.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=398&pictureid=4352

For anyone who is curious no that is not an ukulele on the wall. It is a charango shaped retablo with a music shop scene inside. Nicario is an AMAZING artist. We saw his work when my wife was exhibiting at the American Craft Council Wintermart in Baltimore many years ago. I know she saved up for quite a while to purchase this piece as a gift for me and another of Nicario's retablos for herself. Here is a link to his site and some pictures of the music shop inside. You should see his aquarium piece. Stunning!
