Tree Tuesday

in treetuesday •  5 months ago

I know I am a tad early, even very early, if I were to be honest with myself. But there is something about Christmas in July that appeals to me. Perhaps, it is the long wait or trudging through the snow to get all of my ho-ho-ho done. I am not sure, but, today, I decided that a Christmas Tree in July would suffice.

The buildup of the "magic" of Christmas has changed parental hands and now it is up to you to create some magic for the young and young at heart. It has been said that if I followed my parents' footsteps, it could possibly render the opposite effect and make me sad for what can never be again, becoming painfully melancholy.

I have had to create my own magic. Decorating the tree is seen as remembering the past Christmases. Baking cookies is something I do so that I can give them and make them with my grown kids and give to my friends and neighbors and sometimes assisted living/retirement homes. I do Christmas caroling and go out of my way to get my friends together for some activities; I try not get caught up in the whole agenda of buying and buying.

(¸.•´♥ (¸.•´ ♥ Do something, somewhere, and make that magic. I know you can.

Welcome to #TreeTuesday initiated by @old-guy-photos!


Then, once Christmas is over, pull up a chair and soak up some of that Vitamin D - and peace and tranquility.


This is what it looks like after one too many Coronas. At least that is what I have heard. I am pretty sure that it is 5 o'clock somewhere.


As long as you don't forget about the magic. That is all I ask. Happy #TreeTuesday!

We used to have Christmas in July when we were in Cape town. It was the first time I had heard of a Turduckin!? Sounded foul lol
Lovely tree and a great sentiment @dswigle we need more good spirits in the world.

Checkmate! I think it is perfectly ok to create some magic, be it Christmas, Tropicana, Vacation or sunshine with or without the aid of a Corona or two @dswigle Its interesting to note that I am about to enjoy a Christmas in July luncheon with some friends in an hour or two. Cheers!
