The trimming of the Christmas tree was always a special time at our house. Dad put the lights on the tree(those big bulbs). We also had a few of the bubbly lights that looked like candles and produced bubbles when they got warm. Dad also put the garland on the tree. Then the kids were allowed to carefully place the ornaments on the branches. When all of the ornaments were on, we were allowed to apply the tinsel(icicles). One piece of tinsel was put on each tiny branch. We worked from the bottom up to make sure every little branch was covered. A beautiful and neatly decorated tree was the result. Of course Dad had put the angel on the top of the tree.
Next year perhaps you’ll learn about my own children trimming the family tree. Hold on tight!
