The Christmas tree is light and up

Two weeks ago, our Christmas tree at home is up.  I set it up while the kids are sleeping because when they around, I won’t be able to finish it.  Just like the previous years, the kids were surprised when they woke up in the morning and saw the Christmas tree in the living room.  And as always, thier lips are pouting for they wanted to help putting up the tree, but I did it all by myself.  I am used to it, and their pouting lips are no effect to me.  When they are older, I will be the one telling them to set up the Christmas tree at home.

However, the Christmas lights are no longer working.  Wires are broken, I do not know why.  I have keep it safe in the box.  I have to buy new lights for the Christmas tree and lights to put outside the house.  When the kids saw the tree, they are looking for the lights because they want to light up the tree but was not able to for the old lights are broken.  I have contacted the older brother who is electirician, if he could fix it but instead, told me to buy new one.  I am sad because the lights was bought just last year.  But to be safe, I need to buy new one.  Good thing the older brother gave me money.  Our tree is up and light now.  Thank you brother.

Checking on the Christmas Lights

As we all know Christmas is fast approaching.  I have heard the countdown for Christmas on radio and television.  People are so excited for Christmas Holiday is the event where people are looking forward to because of the parties, lots of events, and family reunion during this season.  I have heard Christmas songs on the radio too.  Also, seen Christmas decorations at the mall.  The spirit of Christmas really feels at the malls.  Others are already have Christmas tree, lights, and decorations at their home.  Makes me smile seeing  and think of putting up our Christmas tree at home too.

We do not have Christmas tree at home yet because we still have to give way to the All Saints and All Souls day.  But I already checked the old Christmas tree that we have, the decorations and the Christmas lights.  Sadly, some lights aren’t working anymore.  Guess I have to buy new one again. Gezzzzz! Expenses coming up so to speak.  But first I have to have it checked my electrician brother, hope he can fixed it.  I am not hoping that it will get fix because the brother did not able to fix the old Christmas lights that we have last year.  I am crossing my fingers though.  I hope this time the brother will fixed it.  Meanwhile, I will think of a nice motif this year.  Will go to malls one of these days to get an idea. *wink*

Have you put up your Christmas tree at home already?  What is your motif this year?
