There are two trees at Casa de Fletcher and you can see them both from the black leather armchair in the living room. I could probably spend hours sitting in that chair and just sort of visually inhaling the trees. I realize I'm a grown man (quit laughing) of 31 years... but there's something that makes me feel six years old when you put a tree in a house and light it up.
The living room tree has a pretty nice mixture of ornaments from both Jessie & I. Merging our Christmas decor was an interesting experience. In her family, Christmas decorations don't necessarily carry any meaning. They buy ornaments because they look cool or, more likely, because they are on sale the day after Christmas. Meanwhile, 97.8% of the stuff on my familial tree back home has a story or meaning to it. I think our tree sort of leans toward the Fletch tradition. Most notable are the ornaments we've brought back from all of our travels. After our cruise this summer, our tree is now participating in NAFTA. All three countries are represented.
We've got a red room, so we made the big creative leap to have a red tree in there. It is the artificial job I picked up during my bachelor days when I decided I didn't want to fool with dead needles.
