Because of Thesserie’s blog, I decided to give this “meme” a try. It sounded fascinating to partake in this Christmas Tree Blog Parade . . . to see the different Christmas tree decor and their “little” story behind it. Well, I’ve always been big on Christmas trees, although this year I was reluctant to put one up because of AC’s 8-month old cockapoo. I’m glad we chose to put one up. For the past 3 years I’ve been decorating with silver accents, but this year I decided to go with gold accents. Also, for the past years, we’ve been going to the Christmas tree farms where the hubs chops down the one we want (family tradition). This year we broke the tradition and bought from our neighborhood tree lot. I started “collecting” ornaments back in 1984 and when the kiddies were born, the tree always had a “children’s theme” . . . wooden toy soldiers, Walt Disney characters, etc . . . but as the kiddies got older, I changed to theme to a more “sophisticated” one. Oh . . and each year I buy JP and AC an ornament . . . something for them to remember and a keepsake when they’re on their own. So there, that’s my little story.

This is a first annual 2007 Christmas Tree Blog Parade Meme created and conceptualized by OTWOMD of Bluepanjeet.Net The purpose of this meme is to enliven the Christmas spirit by showing to the world our very own Christmas trees. They say that it is on the Christmas tree that best describes how a person celebrates Christmas. So here are the rules:
- Copy the Logo of this meme (Download it on the sidebar and resize it that will best fit your blog or according to your desire) and post it on your entry.
- Take a photo of your Christmas tree inside your house. A whole shot is the most appropriate photo. And post it on your entry
- Tell something about your Christmas tree like who decorated it, what are the ornaments and accessories, or what is the theme and meaning of your Christmas tree this year.
- You can put any title on your meme but don’t forget to include this “2007 1st Christmas Tree Blog Parade”.
- Do the link train history. Put the link of your previous bloggers who tagged you and your own link, Example: Tag History: Bluepanjeet – “you” –
The link train will provide clue on “who tagged who” and at the same time a reference of data for the creator of this meme.
On The feast of Three Kings on January (The official ending of the Christmas Season), Bluepanjeet.Net will launch a mini site that will feature all of the participant’s Christmas trees for 2007 with a link back to their site. That is why it is very vital that you maintain the link history so that your Christmas tree will be included in the Christmas tree blog parade of 2007 and will be a part of history.
