Just wanted to share a little story with you
I always loved the look of the Christmas tree all lit up with lights I would lay on the floor and look up through the branches (like most every other child does). We had one Christmas tree and it was in the living room and at night when I went to bed I actually missed the tree.
So many December mornings my Mother would find me asleep under the Christmas tree in the morning. So I guess I was about 10 or 11 years old my mother bought me my own tree
a small little one like 2.5 feet tall, a small box of 35 lights, a box of mini ornaments and some garland. I loved it so much and would fall asleep every night staring at the lit tree. As I got older say 15 I bought my own decorations for my bed room and put lights in my window and decorated my little room like you would the house. It was so special to be able to do that.
When my own niece turned 10 that is what I bought her. Her own Christmas tree and ornaments. She now lives in a Dorm at NYU and her little tree is with her.
I've been an awful good girl,
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight.
