Day 16: Christmas Tree Reveal

Day 16


Linking up for Blogmas 2014…25 Days of Christmas. Because I LOVE Christmastime…not even a flurry, yet!! 😐


My two youngest have started their shopping, so they wanted to get their gifts wrapped and put under the tree.

On our tree are these very old candles, that clip to the branches.  These are like the ones that my grandma (my mom’s mom) had on her tree when she was little.  This is how they lit their trees, and they only did it for a brief moment on Christmas Eve.  Once it got dark outside, they would light the candles, sing and song and say a prayer before their Christmas Eve dinner.  It was probably very pretty, but sounds like a bit of a fire hazard to me. 🙂

Each one of my kids have made my mom an ornament out of Legos over the years, there is a candy cane as well that I didn’t get in the picture.

  1. Your tree looks so lovely! My Gran and Grandad had those type of candles too, but no-one seems to know where they are 😦 LOVE the idea of LEGO baubles (I assume you glue them together so they don’t pull apart?)….I’m definitely going to put my son to work making a few tomorrow!!! What a **brilliant** idea!
