Thanks to Rachel for sending:
“Out with the old and in with the new.
Taking last year’s Christmas tree out and replacing it with this year’s.”
I obviously has to find out more info.
“It was quite an ordeal to get all the lights and ornaments off of it because the branches were literally breaking off, so this year the plan is to take it down before the first day of spring.”
And a little more.
“Well originally it was going to be just our Christmas tree, then it turned into a “winter tree” with the plan to take it down in like March, but the tree still looked so nice and green that we just decided to keep it up. It started to look a little rough by the time summer came around, but things got busy and we just kinda forgot that it was there. Not sure how you start to not notice a tree in your tiny 800 sq ft. apartment, but apparently it happens haha”
And the icing.
“This is also the second time my boyfriend has kept a (real) Christmas tree up for an entire year. Definitely going to be the last time though (fingers crossed!)”
A new bar has been set. I don’t believe this can be topped. Well done Rachel and boyfriend – well done indeed!!
