Get the Biggest Aluminum Tree You Can Find

Lucy said, 'Get the biggest aluminum tree you can find, Charlie Brown!'One of our favorite family blogs, The Right Mom, has a wonderful story of Christmas decorations and remembrances, a time of sharing and love with her daughter. Well worth the read!

I remember sitting in front of the aluminum tree at Little Momma's house (my great-grandmother) when I was a little girl, mesmerized by the changing colors projected onto the tree by the little electric color wheel. We would sit there for hours sometimes, totally hypnotized by the effect, alternating our gaze between the tree itself and the ceiling, where the colorful lights were reflected off the silver "needles" from the tree. What wonderful memories!

One of the things I never understood as a kid was why most of my friends had these Christmas trees and all we got was this big candle (the menorah). Great memories, tho, Shebird!

Thanks for the wonderful link! I have been so busy, I haven't been able to come by and say "hello" and "thanks".

I wanted to also mention that I updated this post. I was able to find a small, but nice aluminum tree. Not the same, but similar. It has fiber optic lights, so we have been keeping it on at night just to watch the colors.

I hope you are stronger and healthier in the coming New Year and that you and Songbird and the rest of your family have a really WONDERFUL and MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
