christmas tree up all year round

I was wondering if anyone else seen anyone do this. I walk every night for excercise and i see a person who has a christmas tree up with blue lights on every night. It's quite cool actually. Christmas in the summer.

I have a 1 ft. table top Christmas tree set up in my room right now fully decorated with Christmas ornaments and lights! It has been set up since Christmas and I decided to leave it there.

When I take down Christmas decorations, in January, I leave a few small decor items out all year long around my house. I have a couple of Christmas snowglobes, a snowman, a Santa and a few other items. They are small, blend in with other things and are in different rooms. I change it up each year on what I decide to leave out.

My uncle passed away this past April and as we were going through his house to clear things out, I noticed he did the exact same thing! I found little Christmas things everywhere! You really had to look, it didn't stand out, just little things. It warmed my heart! The family knows how much I love Christmas and told me I could have all of his Christmas decorations.

That is so cool!!

We have a 3 ft. pencil tree in our entryway, that I leave up year round.
It has holly berries & pine cones on it, and it goes well w/ our lodge decor. I added primitive silicone string lights to it, and it looks great. During different holidays, I add ornaments & more lights to dress it up.

Here it is decorated for Fall/Halloween =]

How neat! It would be cool to leave a small tree up year round and decorate it for each holiday. Hmmm....should I?

Hmmm... I can see the appeal of it. But part of me feels like anything you leave up year round becomes just a thing. It loses its specialness. At least that's how my mind works.

Imagine if we went the other way, and started only putting out things once a year for a month that we usually keep out all year. It would be like, "It's March! Time put up the mailbox." And everyone would be excited about the mailbox during March. That would actually be kind of fun. Of course the rest of the year you'd be collecting your mail in a bucket, which wouldn't be so ideal.

But I say absence makes the heart grow fonder. What makes the christmas tree great (for me) is that it's not there all the time. So you better take a little time every day to appreciate it while it's up.

I dont think i could do that myself,for me a christmas tree would not be special anymore if it was up all year round no matter what size the tree is it would just blend in with everything else.

I remember as a child asking my mom if we could leave the Christmas tree up forever. Of course she told me that it would make it less special and exiciting when Christmas actually DID come if it was something we saw every day. And I kind of have to agree.

But I did work in an office once where they kept a huge 6 foot fake tree up and the ornaments would change based on the holidays. At Valentine's there would be red and pink hearts on it, at Easter there would be colored plastic eggs, and so on until Christmas again. THAT I did enjoy. It was fun seeing the tree change throughout the 12 months. I wish I still worked there!
