    Do you decorate your house for Xmas ?

    Personally, I don't care enough about Xmas decorations to buy some, spend time putting balls on the tree... Then a fir tree is messy, losing all its needles. Plastic ones are ugly. I am satisfied with the great streets, squares and shops illuminations in my city.

    I like lights. I got the LED lights when I was in Japan. They are awesome and so bright. I place lights on the bushes outside my front door and I have a tree that is covered in ornaments that I have collected since I was a child. It's not a gorgeous tree like at the malls and stores, but it's full of good memories for me. Also, I have lots and lots of candles out and I light them every night. I love candle light.

    I used to love a live tree and all the trimmings,but with no children and two cats, it's not practical anymore. Now we have just an 18 inch ceramic tree we turn on for a few days around Xmas, nothing else.

    I put up a tree with lights and decorations, in my front window. I like to turn the lights on in the darkened room, and also know that they are visible from outside. I like it simply because it looks pretty. I always get a real tree; for some reason I just prefer them. I like to bring the real tree into the house because I feel a link with "pagan" traditions. I also put holly around the house.

    I don't generally put up the tree many days before Christmas, but this year I put it up yesterday (or rather, Sunday... midnight has already passed now XD) because I'm going away for Christmas and wanted to enjoy it before I leave.

    I also put up decorations around the house, but I am not so bothered about those because imo they make the place look cluttered. >_< My main decorations I wouldn't consider doing without are tree and holly. ^^" I also put my cards on strings because it keeps them neater than standing them about, and that makes a decoration in itself.

    My wife does most of the decorating. I don't know about "balls and fairy lights", but definitely lots of lights and other decorations. I love having a tree. I potted/live tree is best and when we are done with it, we can plant it in the forrest.
