The battle over Christmas decorations

For the past 4 years DH has grumbled about one particular Christmas decoration. He complains when I talk excitedly about putting it up and turning the light on every day. When DH goes around the house to turn the window candles on he somehow always manages to miss this decoration. I almost gleefully come behind him and make sure it is turned on.

You'd think given DH's mile wide practical streak that the Christmas decoration in question is some kind of hideous, singing exuberance that represents all things wrong with Christmas. But no, instead it is a hand made ceramic Christmas tree. My great-grandmother made 4 of them and I have been blessed with getting one of them for my house.

So, what do you think? Ugly or awesome?

Handmade by your great-grandmother? I can't believe he even bothers to fight you on this one! Awesome.

Awesome. I'm jealous - I don't have one.

Seeing as I have exactly the same one (darker green tho) and it is my absolute favorite decoration, I am going to have to go with awesome. :-). Totally retro cool.

Um, AWESOME! I wish I had custody of my family's one, but I have a cheap knock-off from CVS that I use with pride

I also have a lot of those exuberant singing things (that I tortured Natalie with for years)

My mom made one too. I don't have it but I never thought ugly (hers is dark green with sparkly white snow).

it's all about memories, you can't judge a memory.

Until now I always thought DH had good taste. . .and I hope your grandfather doesn't read this blog! Love, Mimi

I use to have a tree just like that, and always thought it was awesome.
