Christmas at Estrella Lodge
Decorating Estrella Lodge
I really like to put up Christmas decorations. I have been collecting these decorations all my life. Each year I buy a little more to cover breakages which do happen now and again. It is like looking through a diary for me. Putting the decorations up and remembering where and when I got them. Some I must admit are now back in the mists of time but others are still very memorable. On the passing of my parents I inherited some more decorations from them. This process can be a real history lesson for me. Some may think a little outdated with current traditions but I just cannot bare to leave any out. Thank goodness we live at Estrella Lodge where there is plenty of hanging room.
Decorating the tree
So at the beginning of December I will get all the boxes and bags of Christmas decorations out of storage and setup my tree. Not real but I would hate to kill a tree just to decorate it. I will need to do a bit of furniture re-arrangement to make room and then spend the afternoon with a glass of cava and place each item carefully on my tree.
As things change at Estrella Lodge so the Christmas tree ends up in a different location. The preferred location at the moment is out on the BBQ terrace so it can be seen by all and looks great when the lights are on. So I anticipate that it will be there this year too.
There will then be another day spent on other hanging Christmas decorations with more cava and a real sense of joy. I will have to encourage Keith into helping out as I am not very good at the top of a ladder and the naya ceiling is very high.
