Although our house has already been sporting Christmas decorations inside and out, we didn't put the tree up until today. I think tree trimming is a job properly done with a group, and this is the first day everyone living in the house was available to participate.
(The cats wait until the end, when the tree skirt is spread, to do their own decorating underneath the tree.)
While the men are figuring out which light strands need attention, my job is to be the tree 'fluffer'. I straighten out the branch tips that got bent when we stuffed the tree back into the box last year, then position the branches to cover all the gaps. The job takes a while to do well. Usually I get bored with it halfway through and give the rest of the tree short shift.
This year after we got the tree set up Hubby Tony and Son Donald left for about an hour to do a volunteer job. That gave me extra time to do my fluffing. When boredom set in I was able to walk away come back later. By the time they returned home the tree was shaped better than it's been for years!
