To me, Christmas is probably my favourite time of the year!
Our Christmas tree is actually a small artificial Christmas tree that I bought at 70% discount earlier this year at a local supermarket. Back then, our new house was not even ready yet but I already made plan in putting up a Christmas tree in our new home once Christmas arrives.
Last night, my husband and I shopped a little bit of Christmas tree's decorations and lights. It's been a really long time since I had a Christmas tree at home. When I was a kid, my parents' house in Indonesia had a decorated artificial Christmas tree too and I remember my Mom put the tree up on few Christmases. Unfortunately, rats ate our Christmas tree when she kept it in the store room. Since then, my Mom stopped buying Christmas tree and I never saw any Christmas tree at home again, until this year.
Seriously, I long for those cosy and happy atmospheres of the festive season that Christmas brings so I guess I should start listening to some popular Christmas carols on my iTunes now!
