i love stringing lights around the Christmas tree.
A job my dad loathes and has so graciously bestowed upon me.
Some people buy the pre-lit trees.
i find joy in going round, and round the memory tree, gently arranging each colored light until at last an art is found. It took me a few years to master the skill, even as recently as last year my lighting skills still needed honing. The bottom of the tree was sparsely covered in lights while the top half was glowing far too much. But hear ye, hear ye! i have done it this year! it is most impressive
