This weekend I was more than ecstatic to start decorating our tree and lighting it up! My boyfriend Nathan looked confused after I’d put the decorations looking at me saying…”Why in the world would you put the decorations on before the lights?”
I looked at the tree, and then back at him, and the lights on the floor that I hadn’t yet hung on the tree, and began to explain my theory.
“You see hunny, if you hang the lights up first, then put the decorations on after, all your branches will have moved out of place and you’ll have to pull them all out from behind the cords, and then your lights hang unevenly. When you put your lights on last, you get a perfectly even spiral around the tree!”
He said he’s never in his life seen this done before! So I decided to put a poll up on Twitter, because I thought FOR SURE there were other people who decorated their tree this way.
I was wrong! It looks like I’m one of the very few people who decorate first and put the lights on last!
All in all though, at least I didn’t do this :p
