Christmas tree with vintage ornaments

Why do you think that people count the Christmas trees in their homes?


If you haven’t noticed, the number of Christmas trees in a person’s home is definitely a hot topic of conversation on the party circuit this year.

All over America right now at Christmas parties, people are asking that all-important question…..”How many Christmas trees did you put up this year?”


“Why?” is the question I want to ask when they ask me.

When Santa’s checking his list does he say, “Well….they haven’t really been that good this year, but they do have 18 trees.   So load ’em up.”

I think to myself, sometimes it’s not the number, but the simplicity of one.

One extra-special tree that glitters and glistens and signifies all of the wonder and joy of the Christmas season.

One special tree with glittered birds and tiny nests and mirrored snowflakes.

If I were stranded on a desert island and I could only take one tree along for my desert island stay, it would be this one.

And I would contentedly lay on a sandy beach and gaze up into its glittered branches.

So the next time you are at a Christmas party and you are asked that age old question about your Christmas trees.

Just smile to yourself and say, “I have one….

….and it’s spectacular!” 🙂
