I was having one of those moments when I decided I needed a Christmas tree after all.
I am not going to go buy one so what to do, what to do.
Resources, look at my resources. How can I have a Christmas tree in this little place without buying a Christmas Tree?
So there I am looking at my blank white walls, which are quite frankly unnerving after a while, and it dawned on me.
I still have some construction paper left from making the Gingerbread house display board!
WooHoo Christmas tree dilemma solved.
At first it felt a little weird cutting paper “branches” for a tree, but by the time I started gluing on the little colored stars I was singing Christmas carols and imagining that I was hanging the little stars on with wire hangers and that the stars were tinsel and ornaments.
I have a little Christmas tree and thanks to a couple students and Rachel from home, I have presents under my tree too!
I haven’t decided if I want a star, or an angel, or nothing on top of the tree. It seems bare, but I don’t know…. Something will come to me I’m sure.
It is conflicting because I am still not sure where I stand in the religion realm, but it is a ritual, a tradition that makes me feel like a little part of home is here on the little island of Taiwan.
