Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how blah blah blah blah blah blah

Strangely, I only know the words to this song in Portuguese. Which does not help really as I have not the faintest idea what the Portuguese words mean.

Anyway, here is my BEAUTIFUL Christmas tree. I will venture that it is the most beautiful one in the whole of Christendom. I should know, my uncle taught me how to prepare, fix and store the lights, and my dad taught me the cardinal rules of tree decoration:

Even out your branches
Put lights on first - as many as possible
View the tree for "dark patches" and rectify by moving lights around
Decorations first
Then baubles
Then trim

My own rule - NO TINSEL! IT SUCKS!

Now, judge for yourselves, oh peasants. And a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too.

And I'm going to see if this self-gratifying video works.

No, it doesn't. Why am I like tinsel? I suck!

Mels pictures look good on the wall.

You followed your elders directions beautifully. You have the knack.

When you come over to our house you can decorate our tree.

The kitten is cuter. But no tree can compete with little pink ears and a little pink nose and little pink paws.
