Christmas TogetherWe're here year round and even though we are scattered all over the world and most of us have never met face-to-face we find ways to celebrate the season together. From our annual Christmas exchanges to scheduled chats our Christmasing together is discussed here.

My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
I have a dozen trees to choose from, my hippo tree (only 3 foot, and purple) no lights, my black 4 foot tree has 100 lights on it, my topiary spiral tree is fiber optic, the palm tree has 300 lights on it, the main tree is 7.5 feet and will have 800 lights on it, the tree outside is 6.5 feet and it will have 600 lights on it, the upside down tree has 1000 lights on it, and I too listen to Christmas music as I decorate, starting Nov 1.... that way I can enjoy the season longer....

I put different kinds of lights on the tree each year but it's some combination of either mini-lights, C7 twinkle lights, or bubble lights (all multi-colored). I'd say we have a good 6 strands of something on there so not too too many.
I really love a good twinkle bulb though. They're getting harder to find but they're my favorite.
Looking forward to Christmas a little early this year.

we have a 7 1/2 ft prelit tree with 800 clear mini incandescent lights. Since I like my tree lit from the inside out, I usually add a string that runs down the trunk. I also add some multi-colored mini bulbs sometimes, so by the time I"m finished, there are anywhere from 1,000 to 1200 mini lights on it. I don't like large dark areas;

ours is 7 feet and came pre-lit with 500 white lights.I love the multi colors though so I add two strands of those ( which I think are 100 each ) so altogether it's 700 lights but I feel it needs even more.I love lots of light ! That way I can turn off as many other lights as I can around the house at dusk and just enjoy the magical glow
