The 8th Day of Christmas

christmas-lights
Today would have been my Dad's 88th birthday and when I think of Dad and Christmas I think of lights. I couldn't find a picture of Christmas lights that I like so this simple tangle of wire and bulbs will have to do. Besides that's just what the lights always looked like when they came out of the box every December then Dad would say "I'm going to go throw the lights at the bushes." He didn't really but it was a tradition to argue playfully about how the lights looked after he was finished. Funny but we had the same argument about the placing of the tinsel on the tree. They are both good memories. Happy Birthday, Daddy. I miss you.

That's a wonderful memory of your dad, although it can be hard too, remembering loved ones at Christmas time.

I had the same arguments with hubby as well. I usually let him and the Little Witch decorate the tree. I would 'adjust' it when he was at work... *g*

*hugs*
