My little Christmas tree is up again. It is 30 years old - I know I bought it for the Christmas of 1986. It has been a good and faithful servant and has hardly dropped any of its soft nylon (or whatever) needles over the years. It also still has its original chain of lights (a few bulbs changed but I still have some spare ones); and also its original twelve baubles (six red, three gold, three silver). The rest of the decorations have been added over the years. I decorate the tree every year, and take everything off when I pack it down again. And I have probably blogged about it every Christmas since 2009… (For example last year.)
Tomorrow is the Winter Solstice, by the way!
