The holidays are filled with strange traditions. I'm almost 30 years old and my mother still wants me to come home and put ornaments on the tree. Every year we need to put fake birds on the tree. Apparently, it supposed to reflect happiness and joy. Of course like most families we have our glass balls that my brother and I made 20 years in elementary school make an appearance.
Could this lazy Christmas tree be a sign that we are doomed? Being festive is for families. When you live the single life you aren't trying to impress anyone so I guess this is how you decorate.
With my lack of home decor one would assume that I'm a Grinch or some kind of Scrooge but make no mistake, I love Christmas. Although I'm not decorated in the traditional sense I can assure you that I am full of the Christmas spirit. Before you judge my laziness let me explain myself.
