While we are on the subject, this is the ONLY Christmas song I listen to:

Mainly because I associate it with "Gremlins", and "Gremlins" is one of my favorite Christmas movies, and one of my favorite movies overall.

We got our Tree up last night! It was buried in the garage so it took us much longer to access it then it should have ;) ...but it's there now. We finished off the evening by watching "Nightmare before Christmas" Fun Times

Not really into the black-and-silver trees, but I do have a tree and a wreath.

And this here is my new favourite Christmas carol.

And those trees are all so pretty! I prefer real-life (or ones that look real) Christmas trees. Aside from the tree, my house would be goth-ed out year round, even on Christmas. But alas, I live with my mother (who is afraid of all things dark, and even opposes to me watching Nightmare Before Christmas around this time) and must settle for multi-coloured lights and pretty gold wreaths (which isn't so bad).

Oh, I love the old aluminium trees from the 1960s, but good luck finding one for a fair price! LOL Anyway, the new tinsel trees are just as pretty and safe for strings of lights. :-)

Aluminun trees?! I've never heard of such madness and tom-foolery! Are they safe?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aluminium_christmas_tree

They're safe, as long as you care for them properly and illuminate it with the "traditional" colour-wheel at the base, basically giving it a coloured spotlight from underneath. Because they're made of metal, even a soft metal, strings of lights can be a fire hazard, especially older lights. The newer tinsel trees are safer for strings of lights, in part cos lights have gotten safer in recent decades, and in part cos of the material that they're made of is more plastic with a metallic coating.

Ms. M, also check out Mediaeval Baebes' "Mistletoe and Wine", and Projekt's "Holiday Singles 1" and "Holiday Singles 2".


Oh, just to add to the don't forget list: there's also an Excelsis 3 called "A Prelude" for those that may not know...

Last year we looked at our "Traditional" multicoloured tree and said to ourselves... "Why?" Then we went with the white lights and silver and black decorations. I find it quite pleasing. Wish we could keep it up all year round.
