For the past 7 Christmases I’ve spent with my husband, we never put up a tree in our home. Simple reason being, he is practicing the Jewish religion and they don’t celebrate Christmas. They do have their holiday called Hanukkah(festival of lights), which is like equivalent to Christmas and the ornamentation they display in their homes is a menorrah (a specially designed candle holder with candles, of course).
All those past seven years I was never prevented by Frank to put up a tree. In fact, he encouraged me, for us to get a natural tree for it’s beauty and the scent, but I never seriously considered. I sure do miss my 10 ft. tree(the one I had in my apartment in Makati) and the fun of decorating a tree.
This year, I’m seriously considering to put up a tree but not firmly decided yet. Will I get to do it? I’ll update you. Abangan.
