This coming August will mark one year since my Dad went to Heaven. As the holidays approached last year I began to think of all the people who celebrate Christmas but don't put up a tree or decorations. Now don't get me wrong to each their own.. And there are many reasons as to why. The most common I have heard is they don't have that many visitors and they don't want to deal with the mess to clean up. But last year missing my Dad it hit me. We only get so many birthdays in a life time so make a cake. We only get so many years with our children before they grow up, So play ball or dolls with them. And we only get so many Christmas' to enjoy. So put up a tree and decorate.......... A few years ago my wife and I bought one of those $600 pre lite trees on sale after Christmas for $50. It stands about 9ft tall and comes in four heavy sections. I know some day I will be to old to be able and handle that size tree and most likely will have to use a smaller one. But none the less I will only have so many Chrismas' here on this earth and I vow to always decorate and have a tree. No matter how big or small.
