Christmas Tree
Christmas Tree | Jennifer Johnston
112 posts | 2 read | 1 to read
Constance Keating has lived a life of internal exile, alienated from her family and from Ireland. Now she has returned to her family home to die. While that painful, messy process takes place she replays, like a home movie, the fragments of her past. And, as the festooned Christmas tree awaits its day, so Constance also waits, hoping her child's father will come and that the final outcome will be on her terms.

My tree 🎄. Sadly our big, fluffy tree didn't make it thru storage this year. Still need to put up other decorations around the house.

My 2 year old is having a grand time taking all the ornaments off & hiding them though! 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ this will be the last time this looks like this, the ornaments will end up on the top portion of the tree soon lol

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all you littens! Here's my attempt at a Christmas book tree. Not perfect but not too bad for my first attempt I think. I definitely wanna start doing this every year. It's been a very uneventful holiday for me today, my first Christmas alone, but I was happy to see some friends over the last couple days. So I'm just enjoying the day off and seeing all these lovely Christmas posts 🤗🎅🎄

This is one of my most prized possessions. My grandmother made this at least 40 years ago. There is something to pin on the tree all the way up to the 24th. All of the sequins were sewn by hand. We did not have the best relationship as I grew older, but I can appreciate the love and work she put into making this.

I decided to pull out the old tree. This will be Luna's first experience with a Christmas tree😸. I'm not too concerned about the cats destroying it because the lights don't work and I plan on throwing it out anything but I worry about them trying to eat it.

Kalalalatja @julesG haha I don‘t think we do it out of nationalism, but Danish flags are used for all kinds of celebrations, so it is more because of traditions 😄 2y
julesG Well then traditionalism. Whatever. You are proud to show being Danish. A lot of us Germans would rather crawl under the carpet than admit our nationality. Anyway - I love seeing the flags everywhere when I get to your country. I hope I can muster the strength to drive up there next year; not to mention having the funds. 2y

I finally finished decorating my tree. Never believe the dimensions in catalogs. This is not 5-1/2 ft. And this year I replaced my fairy with the Hottest Avenger (ymmv) because he is fit to protect my tree and my home and be worshiped as the god he is. It also makes this a Chris-mas tree.
