    As a baby/youngster, we always got a real tree...went to the A&W, where they filled the car-hop area with trees. I think we got it a week or two before Christmas. When Mom and Dad purchased a small country general store, we had gas pumps out front and Mom worried a bit, so they went to artificial. I didn't mind, as the tree went up soon after Thanksgiving!

    The only thing I follow that my mom did is the multi-colored lights!

    Well, what I loved most about my mother's tree was the Shiny Brite ornaments. So I have one tree decorated with old Shiny Brites that I got on eBay:

    And this past Christmas I found reproduction Shiny Brites with stencils!

    But generally I do a lot of decorating that is my own style and not hers.

    The greatest gift I ever received was wrapped in swaddling clothes!
