This Week's Theme - LIGHTS

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

At last I was able to finish decorating our tree. There are 3000 lights with red and gold trimmings in it. I also wanted to take shots of the garden and our front yard because my hubby filled it up with christmas lights but there was a strong typhoon today. In my country, these lights stay lit until the first week of January after we celebrate the feast of the Epiphany.

    Oh my ! 3000 lights must have taken you a lot of time to get them all up ! Looks beautiful. Apparently nothing happened to you during this awful typhoon.

    What a stunning tree - just gorgeous! Hope you survive the typhoon intact (we were in Hong Kong riding the tail of the last one there, and it wasn't much fun!).

    What a beautiful Christmas tree you have. In my home-country we don't put up the tree until Christmas Eve, but it will stay up until Epiphany too :)

    Thank you for stopping by today.

    Umm... did I really get it right? Three thousand lights??? Wow... In Finland we don't decorate the tree until 23rd or 24th of December - then it stays until epiphany - and we put some 20 lights in it and decorations so that there is more green than decorations. Funny how cultures are different :)

    Thanks for stopping by mine!

    This is the kind of tree we used to put up when the kids were little but now it is just the two of us and we are into littler trees unfortunately. I miss the big ones but I also do not miss putting it up and taking it down!! Yours is gorgeous!! Thanks for sharing it...Sandy
