Funky town

My platonic life partner, Mathew, is all about the holidays. Particularly Christmas. While I think this might be my last year celebrating it. He likes the traditional Christmas colors, look, ornaments and tree. While I, prefer to get a little funky and colorful. And thus, the funky tree was born:

The picture is a little cut off at the top and bottom, but you get the idea. Lisa and I picked out the ribbon and the ornaments. Mat, amazingly enough, picked out the blue poinsettia.

I really wanted a pink tree. I went all crazy pinning pink xmas stuff on Pinterest. I do have a white tinsel tree with big pink tinsel sequins on it in my room. It has some pink antique looking ornaments on it. I also have strings of purple lights all over my room.

But alas, I think I shall give it all up next year.

Out of curiosity, why are you wanting to give it up next year? I’m not all that big on Christmas decor, either. To me, it takes hours to put up and hours to take down and put away. And it’s all within a month or less. Blah. (And yet I’ve got a small tree in my room.)

I feel weird celebrating a holiday that is considered a Christian holiday when I myself am not Christian. My room-mates keep telling me that the holiday is less about the birth of Jesus these days, but I still feel weird about it.
