By Julie Puckett Fodera:
For eight years, our family tradition was to haul out our 9-foot artificial Christmas tree and decorate it with more than a thousand lights and color-coordinated ornaments. Fully adorned, our tree looked like it belonged on the cover of a magazine detailing the lives of the rich and glittery.
Often featured on our holiday card, our tree was displayed in our front window, so passers by could behold its majesty.
To achieve this glamorous look, I, my husband and our two teenagers had to toil all day. Last year, the kids complained the whole time. Even worse was when it came time to take the tree down. No one wanted to help me, and an argument ensued.
