Hello again, I haven’t had a guest post here for a while as its proving hard to get copy approved!
I wanted to write about an issue which has been a long running debate for centuries! The Christmas Tree – Real or Artificial!
It’s funny. I had mentioned many times how I love the fact that we are a multi cultural family, how we get to experience the best of both. But on this topic we had very different views. For me it’s real all the way! I feel it’s a ritual, involving the kids in that process. Very important task choosing the right tree! It must be said I have driven my parents, former housemates and now wife crazy with this.
Its part of the family!
Two years ago Breno and I went out and thought we had the perfect tree. We came home all happy. But when we put it up, it took half the living room space up! So wife sent me packing with my tree in search of another one.
I love the smell of fresh pine, I love the excitement of bringing it in and putting it up. For me, this is the start of Christmas. This year my Vida really pushed for an artificial tree and I have to say as all wives are… was very persuasive…! So, I thought about and decided that maybe I needed to reassess my priorities and compromise! So I did. I went on-line and looked for the perfect artificial tree and I must say found one (50% off as well!). I emailed my Vida to tell her. Then 5 minutes later I got a phone call saying that she was out looking for a real tree for me. I couldn’t believe it, I was so happy. Not about the tree, but more about the gesture. Not that I need confirmation that I have the most wonderful wife in the whole world… but I felt so lucky.
I started to think about why a tree was important to me and turns out it’s not the tree itself but what it represented. It’s the memories of having wonderful family Christmases. That’s what I want to give to my kids, like all parents, we do our best to make sure they remember the happy times and memories. With the wonderful Mum they have though I’m sure they will regardless of what tree is there.
I probably won’t be invited back again before Christmas so I would like to wish you all a Happy Christmas, I hope you all have a wonderful time with your family and friends.
