me and my step-mom always do it. Its a bonding tradition we've had since i met her. I remember it like it was yesterday she came to live w/us when i was 11 and thats the first year we did it. she brought all of her ornaments out and it was so pretty . i never seen anything like that. my pop is not that into christmas so we had stuff but nothing like hers. anyways she put the true joy of decorating the tree in my heart. So now that im 26 nothings changed. every year no matter what we put that Christmas Tree up togather. its our own little mother daughter thing, i love her for that n more!
