With that done there was just one thing left to do,tinsel. My Father was very particular about tinsel. It went on one piece at a time, no more than or two or three strands to a branch so there would be enough to cover the tree, but that did not stop me from the occasional toss of a handful onto a top branch here and there.
Once all the decorations were up the whole family would sit together in the living room with the tree lit and all of the other lights off. Christmas then was filled to over flowing with love and laughter. I wish all of you the same for this Holiday season.
