Most likely, we all erect the annual Christmas tree in the same spot in the house each year. In the house we had before this one, there was actually a very good spot for the tree if I rearranged the living room furniture in a certain way. (That was no problem for me because I frequently rearranged the furniture.)
We've been in this home for coming up on twenty years and even though we've added on a room that is now our living room, there's no way I can fit a tree in that small, but cozy, room.
So the tree (and a small tree it must be . . . although this year it turned out to be smaller than usual) remains in the kitchen perched upon the top of a cabinet.
This miniature version of a tree is okay with me as I'm not particularly fond of decorating the tree (and taking it down!) anymore, so the smaller the tree, the less time it takes. Our daughter still hassles us a smidge nearly every year about when are we going to again get "a real tree" (i.e., regular sized one that stands on the floor) because that's what she grew up with, but I don't think it's ever gonna happen. Unless we move to a bigger house. And I know that's never gonna happen, because we've got too darn much stuff to ever move! Besides, we're firmly entrenched here and love it.
Anywho, back to Christmas tree placement.
Where does the tree reside in your home? Is it in a convenient place, or does it halfway block a doorway? Or main entrance? (Oops.) Or take the space where the dog's bed usually is? Does its placement keep you from accessing the kitchen sink? (Now there's an idea . . . ) I'm assuming it doesn't block the view of the TV/DVD screen? Do you have to rearrange furniture to fit it in? Does hubby's favorite chair get relegated to the garage during the holiday season? (Let's hope not.) I'm curious. Is it a problem making room for your tree or do you have the ideal spot for it?
