Last year I was not in the Christmas spirit, whatsoever. I was entirely depressed from the overwhelming commercialism that is Christmas and the pressure of having to buy presents and trying to figure out what to buy. We didn't even put up a Christmas tree! This year, I am feeling slightly more spirited. We've even put up two trees! The large tree is referred to as the flea market explosion by thaKing. The topiary tree is the bird and gnome tree. It makes me so happy to see the little gnomes peeping around the branches. R.C. is even feeling the spirit.
