      no decorations here we're non-practicing jews but i grew up with a 1' fake tree. when my parents moved, my father decided that he didn't care what my mother thought anymore - since he grew up with a real tree, he was going to have one...then my sister moved out and got a tree...dh won't let me have one tho, and since we don't have/want a menorah, we're the only unlit house on the block.

        I love all the decorations! I have absolutely no Christmas cheer at my house. I feel like I should do something now, you guys got me in the mood! I was kind of shunning the holidays in general. Hmmm...I wonder where the Xmas decoration box is

          My Dad is Jewish. He always participated with our Christmas holiday. Even now (my parents are divorced) he comes over with Christmas presents. We try to go over and light the candles with him to support him too.

            What a fun thread, Abbie :)

            Everyone's decorations look great and really put me in the Holiday Spirit! :)

            We have a ginormous (like 8-10 foot) artificial tree that my Grandparents gave us last year (they were "downsizing" - now they have a 2' tree lol). It's a great tree, don't get me wrong - but it's just so friggin' HUGE. lol Ah well, good thing we have really high ceilings. It takes so much to decorate it. This year I finally decided to stick with a theme (instead of a hodgepodge, although their is still a lil' of that - not super strict on the theme I guess). We have red lights, a white glittery light up star on top and just bought several sets of pearly-white, silver and shiny/glittery red ornaments. We also have some great ones that people have given to us (since last year was our first year doing our own tree).

            It took about 3 days of work (putting that tree together can be a tad cumbersome!) but we finished it on Friday and now I love it
            She even asked me once if I wanted the "collectible Hello Kitty 'adult toy'" (aka vibrator) for god's sake! It's totally crazy.
            .
            Ok that is just freaking weird! EEK!!!

            I'll take a pic and post when I can (may have to wait until later this week after the surgery).

              We don't decorate much for christmas. last year we didn't do anything at all. our place is small so we don't have room to store decorations and if we put stuff out it would be in the way. once we have a house, I'll definitly decorate.

              I do have one decoration out this year.

              When i was home for thanksgiving, my SIL was looking through my mom's ornaments. my mom only does a very small tree now, so all of the ornaments we've had since we were kids are kept in boxes. This will be my bro & SIL's first christmas in their house, so they are taking some of my mom's old decorations for this year.

              She asked if I wanted any of them. The only ornament that popped in my head that I really loved as a kid was a castle with topiaries in the front of it. I described it as this beautiful, magestic ornament. I used to lay next to the tree & stare at it. Any time I see topiaries, I get that warm & fuzzy holiday feeling.

              After looking through some boxes my SIL found it. Ready to see the amazing, magestic castle i remembered from my childhood?

              hmm, not as fancy as I remembered. But, i really liked pink as a kid so maybe that's why I was so drawn to it.

                i've started collecting ornaments. I thought it would be fun for mike & i to get each other & ornament each year & write a letter to go with it.

                well, he found this tradition to be tourture. so instead we go together & buy an ornament each year. i've been on a bird kick getting these feathery birds. he got a silly little snowman that plays jingle bells.

                my future tree will not be fancy. it will have to be a silly, eclectic mix. i could never commit to one style of ornaments.

                    Morgan - That is sooo cute!

                    Jamie - I don't have any butterfly ornaments, but if I could find one I would get it. I also love butterflies and have a butterfly tattoo

                    morgan, that is so funny, how we remember things from childhood a bit differently than they really were!
