Sore Afraid

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'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.

A "Charlie Brown" Christmas Tree!
No, you have to have a BIG tree!
Not some wimpy prelit thing!!
I agree Sara, I'd be listening to Charlie Brown too!

grace&mercyI tend to agree with the Mr., in fact, I gave away the little bitty tree we had last year and put up a manger scene instead. I am old and do not wish to put up and take down and decorate any more trees thank you very much. I will, Lord willing, decorate the inners and outers of our home with Christmasy things, but no tree again this year. Forget Charlie Brown, call me Scrooge.

p.s. does the scripture you quoted
have a hidden meaning, such as..
Lo..the Mr. should be sore afraid of the Mrs.?

wait until next year when only 1/3 lights up.

don't do it. it's bad

Mrs. Mac said...

Ditto to Margie ... btw I just gave away my once used Costco tree. It, was unfortunately not a slim tree ... but with so many pre-lit lights ... I couldn't keep it on too long because it made the room too warm ;) (for real) ... If you don't put your foot down now with the Mr. he may never be reformed (eh .. hee, hee). Between the two, I'd opt for a genuine Charlie Brown tree instead of the fake one.

i have a pre-lit slim and mine is very pretty--once you load it down with decorations to cover the gaps.
