Who doesn’t love a White Christmas? Be it the movie, an early winter snow to cast a silvery-white magical Christmas veil over the bare trees, or an homage to all of the above with a “white christmas tree.”
I was never one who thought, pshah–we must have two trees, one in the living room and one in the billiard room. No our two trees were born out of panic and necessity several years ago, when it baceme clear that mommy couldn’t take the sixteen snoopy ornaments on one branch anymore.
“Put that riiiight here,” I would say to the three year old, moving her ornament so as not to weigh one branch down with Snoopy, Charlie and Lucy. I mean, I get it, to a three year old it makes sense to have the gang all together. To an obsessive compulsive it creates panic. But my obsessive tree rearranging was ruining all of the fun and I knew it…we needed a Plan B.
And thus was born the affectionately called “OCD Tree.” This is the tree that stands in the living room and is covered in exactly the number of twinkle lights prescribed by Martha Stewart depending on its height. This is the tree where I get to say, “that is too large to hang next to the feather poof, try it on a lower branch.” This is the tree that glistens in silver and white and large poufs of ostrich feathers. It’s my little slice of White Christmas. And while it may have started out as “my tree,” it is just another family tree now, an opportunity for us to decorate twice rather than once. But everyone should try an all white tree someday. Never any such thing as too much glitter.
