Well December has just started and we are already expecting snowfall/flurries around here. In the spirit of the season, the staff and the few people from my department are busy right now putting up and decorating the holiday tree in the "megaron." Since most of the client requests from overseas aren't going to be coming in for a few weeks, we kinda decided to make the environment a bit more festive like we did last year.

Well how about you guys? Have you made plans on getting your tree? What are you guys up to and what are your plans for this upcoming holiday season?

I can feel the Christmas spirit! :D Well, usually my mother put up the Christmas tree on my birthday, since it is the first day of the month, but she was very busy today, so I'm expecting to put the tree on my living room tomorrow! :p But it'll be harder to find a good one, my mother only likes natural trees, she's not very fond of the artificial ones :p

My first christmas with my dog was so funny. I put my obviously-wrapped shaped toberone from a friend under the tree, i left the room for a bit and when i re-entered, my dog was sitting there chewwing and eating it like a bone!

As is ours, but at least we can brag about it being one of the very first plastic trees ever. It's actually amazing how green it still is considering the amount of needles we clean from the floor every year again.

Plastic Tree: Doesn't bio-degrades, Will be in a land fill for decades, and since most of the cheap plastic trees are made of... cheap plastic, there is a good chance they can't be recycled ;).

Organic Tree: None of the above, and you can bury the remains for composting purposes.

EDIT:


Do you take the photos all the time, Catapharact? :whi:

Usually? No. In today's case though, I just had to. Its was just one of those nice, not-so-hectic days. Besides, its good to make memories with people who do matter ;).

I am looking forward to my winter vacation however.

And we've had so many sets of lights over the last few years I can't even remember what the current set look like. I think that's the worst bit: getting the lights out and trying them only to discover they don't work and it's Christmas Eve.:hea:

We set up our tree yesterday! Today we will put up the Christmass lights in the kitchen, in my bedroom and in the balcony :p ! Our tree is really funny, we have this tree for 10 years now! The decoration of the tree is even funnier! We don't have a specific colour of balls and decorations, we have decorations from all these 10 years! The Christmas mood is in the air xD . I doubt it will snow this year here in Athens. All the years of my life only two times have snowed here :( ...

The LEDs on the company tree have a timer fixed on em so they automatically turn on at sunset. Gotta give a hand to Aziz (one of our maintenance crew men) for coming up with the idea.

Anyway, trees people... put em them pictures.

Seeing other people's trees is odd. I'm so used to my own tree decorating style I can't accept any other varieties :o

I like trees which are: well proportioned (not tall and skinny or short and fat); are decorated in silver, gold, or red; have yellow or white lights only; aren't made of plastic.

Having said that, this tree is my favourite :D
