The perfect Christmas tree?

 

“The perfect Christmas tree? All Christmas trees are perfect!”

I honestly get sad whenever I see a “perfectly” decked out tree. You can tell that every bulb has been meticulously placed, perfectly matched, and someone has a fit if anything looks out of place. It doesn’t feel as magical to me because the focus is one the perfection and not the sentiment.

I remember that my dad was very meticulous with our tree, but nothing was perfectly matched. We had an eclectic set of ornaments from random purchases to handmade by us kids. His artistic sense just wanted there to be some kind of balance to the tree, but it was purely done with love. We learned to love it just as much. And nothing was more perfect to us than our eclectic Christmas tree. We set it up together. What about your tree?
