Anybody interested in using this thread as a gathering place for us on Christmas Day? I think that could help with loneliness. We've met on Christmas Day in the past. We bring food, talk about presents, and maybe even bring some, talk about how our meeting place is decorated, and so on. I'll bring a big Christmas tree. And let's bring ornaments that we can decribe.

Where I live is a great place to get a Christmas tree! North Carolina sends Christmas tree to White House, and will provide 2024’s tree, too

The Christmas lights in our town are switched on, and they've all ready got people booking for the Christmas show (Peter pan I think)

I've got some decorations up but not all. Listening to Christmas music now, have done though for weeks

I'll be alone, but I'm sure it will be nice- especially if I get to watch a good Christmas movie or two (sure I will!)

Just bought two ornaments for my grandkids. One Jack skeleton block head and a unicorn.

We now have a tree in our meeting place--a ten foot Frasier Fir. It's ready to decorate. How about something for its top? Suggestions?

I got some glass blown icicles. Got enough to cover about a fourth of the tree. Who else has something?

When I was 3 my uncle gave me a beautiful sparkling satin rocking horse. He's been on every tree I've had since, first always as a child and then later when I've done a tree (I don't always). He'll jump into the festivities this year.

Okay, we're now in business! A multi-colored star in top, glass-blown icicles, and a beautiful sparkling satin rocking horse. Sounds beautiful already. What else?

My sister collects "The 12 Days of Christmas" ornaments, and she has too many now for her tree. SO, we got the spare ones! A bunch of patridges in pear trees, turtledoves, French hens, calling birds, golden rings, ... drumming .drummers, piping pipers, leaping lords, dancing ladies, and three other kinds? What are they? I can't remember!
