Tradition with a Red and White Christmas Tree

For our family this Christmas is special….for a couple of reasons.

One - is that it’s the first Christmas in our new home!

My house - Setting for Four #house #exterior

We moved here 4 months ago and although our home is new and the mantel where our stockings hang is different this holiday…

our Red and White Christmas tree will be the same,

the same red and white ornaments, the same icicles, Santas and nutcrackers…

Pin It

the same tradition…

….of a red and white Christmas tree.

Oh sure there are Christmas trees decorated in blue, silver, gold and green…

but for us it’s a traditional red and white tree that reminds us of years past.

Because the best reason this Christmas will be special is solely because this will be the first Christmas in a long time where our military family will spend quality time together and just be together as one….

….together as one, beside our Red and White Christmas tree!

  1. Congratulations on enjoying your first Christmas in your new home and with all of your family! You have fond memories of past Christmases with your red and white decorated tree, and even though it's the same tree, I bet it looks and feel different in your lovely new home. Cherish all of the memories you had and the ones you are forming now. Happy Holidays to you all!
