The Christmas tree ... It's a centuries-old tradition that brings such joy to the holiday season. Each year, family and friends gather around the bedecked Christmas tree to celebrate the holidays.
My French-Canadian father had a family tradition of putting the tree up on Christmas Eve, one he continued throughout his life. It drove us crazy but good old dad would not relent - that's the way it was done in his family and so it would continue in ours! When the revered tree went up though it was quite the celebration in our home.
We would enjoy Reveillon and all that it entails ... tourtieres and cakes
I don't know about you, but I can't imagine anything other than a real tree in my home, and I'm not alone. Today we put ours up around December 15th
