O Christmas Tree

'Tis that time again to bedeck the tree with decorations!

   Untangling the string of lights is one of my annual frustrations!

      Naughty words are said but when all is said and done, you'll,

         Happily declare that sans a Christmas tree it wouldn't be a Yule!

Placed No. 9 in Kim Merryman's "Here We Go A Caroling" Contest - January 2013

    LOL... All that trouble is finally worth it when you are done and can relax in the glow of the tree... My tree is small and stays decorated when put in the basement after Christmas... I used to have a hugh tree with tons of work... But now have 3 big dogs with bigger tails... So the tree is small and higher off the ground... LOL...It's the love that counts...

    Lol, naughty words coming from you, Bob. Nah. I hate those things -untangle them and all. But the final product and the enjoyment are so worth the frustration. Hope you win :)
