The Mr. has launched a rebellion. He has determined in his heart that he will purchase a pre-lit slim-line Christmas tree.
Now, I ask you, how will I every year change my Christmas tree lights if he does this abominable thing? Multi-color, white, solid red...it's my right as an American!
His reply? Apparently in all his 42 years NO ONE has EVER helped him with the tree and so he is taking matter into his own hands. He has carried a mighty burden in brave silence. If you listen carefully, you'll hear me weeping for him.
He showed me the tree he wanted in Target. Here is an actual picture of him with his tree.
This was my reply...
Christmas time is here. Happiness and cheer. Fun for all that children call, Their favorite time of the year Snowflakes in the air, Carols everywhere, Olden times and ancient rhymes, Of love and dreams to share Sleigh bells in the air, Beauty everywhere, Yuletide by the fireside, And joyful memories there Christmas time is here, We'll be drawing near, Oh, that we could always see, Such spirit through the year, Oh, that we could always see, Such spirit through the year...
The box the tree comes in fits in my pocket.
And this my friends, is why I was playing the Charlie Brown Christmas CD on Saturday.
We'll just see about this.
Luke 2:9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
