Turkey, Trees and Christmas Lights

And Black Friday; we can't forget that. Whether you brave the super sales, put up the Christmas tree or just eat leftover Thanksgiving food, it's the day after Thanksgiving and Christmas is in the air.

I thought about getting a new artificial tree this year, the prestrung kind so I wouldn't have to deal with untangling lights and trying to get them look right on the tree. In the end, I decided to use the old one. I can patch it up a little and I've already got two or three strings of perfectly good lights. I did find a new tree topper at the Goodwill thrift shop.

Frugally speaking, the old one looks as good as a new one would once the decorations are on it.  

As much as I love the holiday, frugal wins every time. If you're thinking of a handmade Christmas, it's none too soon to get started.

Plans for a green Christmas
Faux or Real Fir?

Christmas is, almost as much as anything else, a celebration of tradition. Families together, kids bright eyed, snow on the ground (we hope!), big dinner... and an old tree with Grandma's old ornaments on it.
