It breaks my heart how so many people are hurt for the way they believe. I have seen at least 2 blog friends hurt by others for there belief or non belief in the celebration of Christmas.
I found this video on the true history of This day.

HISTORY OF THE HOLIDAYS: CHRISTMAS
History of HANUKKAH
This is my Christmas tree this year It is a ficus dressed with
red hot chili peppers.
And a home made ornament sent to me by my brother in Ohio.
The Angle on the sorta top is hand made of white paper.
The snowman was made by Jeremy my grandson.
I will be adding more as time goes on.
In the past Christmas was a time of depression for me. It was too commercial.
The kids want so much and in the winter my hubby would be laid off. As he was an Asphalt foreman.
So I tried many ways to ward off depression. I started with a real palm tree decorating it.
But since I had no green thumb for indoor plants. That plant did not last.
I then decorated one of my Banana trees. It was fun.
But then I found this fake ficus.
Aw this is my answer. I can not kill it. yea.
I have seen so many poinsettias. I gave it so much thought then, I found this one Saturday.
Yes, It's fake. I love it. HE HE HE HE.
You all know how I love real plant. But only the out side plants like me.
This year I plan to have the best Christmas in history.
Because it is not how much you give.
It is enjoying the family& friends you have.
I found this wonderful translator link click here
Now I can put in what my new Italian friend said in my comments and it will tell me what she said. Then I can write what i want and it will give me words for her. She can read my page by the google translator on my side bar. I so love this. But it will not translate my comments for me.
