Chirstmas is the season of Love, Joy and Happiness. This is also the time when we decorate our house, put up stars, lights and a Christmas tree to bring in festive mood and cheer.
I love putting up the Christmas tree and decorating it, and as a ritual we have been doing it regularly at home. Usually put up during the Advent season, the first sunday of December, I manage to get the men at home join me in this endeavour. Advent season Focuses on expectation and it serves as an anticipation of Christ's birth in the season leading up to Christmas.
When Dennu was small, he was all enthusiastic about these stuff and now he is kind of aloof. I still managed to get him into this tradition. To a comment on FB where my niece asked my son, if he helped in the decorations at home, he has replied stating, If you can consider watching someone do it, I have done lots of help.
So, I thought I will share the pictures of my Christmas tree that we have put up this year. I had lost our 10 year old tree to the floods last year, so this is a new one, though most of the ornaments on the tree are the ones that i have collected over a period of time. some are even 20 years old. Wow right?

Yes, Christmas Joy is spreading and to me this is absolutely amazing.
May the Peace, Joy and Love of this season be with you all. Merry Christmas Folks.
