Tips for Buying a Fresh Tree
I will do that fresh cut of the trunk.....that was my problem last Christmas.....the tree lost so many needles....even tho it was fresh....the problem was....since I didn´t cut the trunk....the tree...
It's a slow day here, last day before Thanksgiving, I'm the only one in my row, so...I got out all my Christmas decorations. I have a little tree that I do up, a little nativity, a candy bucket that says "Joy to the World" that I fill with little candies, and a few things to hang up on my cabinet, an old fashioned Santa, a snowman, a start, a couple of stockings etc., and of course my countdown chalkboard. Just wondering if anyone else does, or is allowed to? I know some places of business (like my sister's) don't allow anything.
My work, fortunately, lets us decorate within reason, and even puts up several huge trees and winter type displays. We'll be hosting our Holiday Breakfast soon, and it will look like a Winter Wonder Land here! When my daughter was little, she came here for the breakfast (got to see Santa etc.), and she thought for several years that Mom worked at the North Pole, .

I was allowed to decorate my first year at work and it was great. Then they put a stop to it because of ISO policies. If anyone works in manufacturing you'll know what that means. Well, I got a little sick of it so I started putting up some stuff on top of my desk light (there's a shelf on top of my light). My boss hasn't said anything yet. As long as I don't put anything up there that has glitter or something like that that could fall onto my work area I think I'll be ok. I put up a little gold tree that had little ornaments glued to it, a santa count down thing, a couple of shelf sitters (reindeer and santa) and a little swing with frosty and santa sitting in it together. This year I have some of the same decorations but, I don't know if I'll use them or use some new things. I already have my Santa countdown at work so I just have to add some more things. I always do my decorations in a tasteful way so that I don't blow it for everyone. So far, so good!!

I've got a fine line to tread. As I work in a Registrar's office, we do the registering of births, deaths and marriages. So, while we can do decorations, we can't have anything religious (legal requirement; we're civil ceremonies - if people want a religious wedding, they can go to church) Also, we can't be too over the top as we are constantly dealing with the bereaved and they aren't always receptive to Christmas at these times.
So we do understated and tasteful. A tree in the reception area, two small trees in the Marriage room. Can't have a nativity or a star on the tree but it's Christmas nonetheless and we do what we can!!!
I don´t work right now...but the places I worked at...nobody really did it...even I didn´t it....cos I hated my working place....at least the first one...the second one was cool...but somehow...I never cared about my working place looking somewhat homely...so I never put Christmas Stuff up...funny tho...since I´m such a Christmas Nut.
I forgot to mention...that I think it would have been alright from the boss to put some little lings on the table....
oh wait...thinking bout it...we had a Advent´s wreath in one of the rooms....that was the deocratoions.
When I worked in an office my boss was Jewish but he didn't care if we had a tree. So I put the tree up and one day he came in with an ornament saying his little girl sent it because she wanted him to put it on our Christmas tree, it kinda broke my heart for she loved our tree and they didn't have one.
