I put up my little yule tree!
now I just need to make / acquire decorations for it
and maybe put on some brighter lights
but it makes me so happy :3
real trees! I’m jealous! if we can afford it next year maybe… this year we thought the kitten was still too young so the risk was too high. We have a two foot fake tree and the lights run down into the bookshelf. ~holidays~
I was surprised that my little tree was only $20! (full disclosure: it was another $15 for the stand.) I’m not kidding about the little though, it’s one of the tabletop ones so only about four feet tall (it looks big from outside! lol)
I haven’t had a tree in years and I love them so much and this year I just said fuck it, don’t even care that I don’t own a single ornament or any other decorations, I’m not even a ~holiday person~, fuck it haha. and my cats are surprisingly good with holiday trees! (it might have to do with being a tiny tree too? not so tempting? idk.)
a wee little fake tree is still better than no tree at all! (also, if you go to the xmas tree lots and ask reeaaal nice, they might give you branch trimmings for free [I have done this]! it’s not a whole tree, but you can kinda fake it with some authentic piney goodness lol.)
