Apparently December 1 is “the day” to put up your Christmas tree.
Personally I think that’s way too late. It’s more like November 1 at our place. And last year I may or may not have put up our tree during the October school holidays. I love putting up our decorations and it seems a shame to have everything up for only one month.
We have a huge Christmas tree and I like to have an ornament adorning every little sprig. We have a wonderfully eclectic mix of decorations which we add to every year. So how could I resist the invitation to check out christmaskingdom.com.au?
The site is a veritable Christmas wonderland where you can buy anything and everything from Christmas trees and lights to animated reindeer hats and Christmas cookie cutters. There is all the Christmas kitsch you would expect, along with more classy and contemporary decorations.
What I really like about the site is that you can sort everything by type (no glass baubles at our place!) price and colour. I was keen to add a bit of pink to our tree this year so it was handy to search on colour alone. And look what I found:
Here are some other items we ordered to add to our Christmas decoration collection:
Christmas Kingdom is easy to navigate and you can buy almost any type of Christmas decoration.
My delivery took just over a week to arrive – which was a little longer than I expected – so if you’re one of those types that put their tree up on December 1 you’d better hop to it!
It’s helpful (scary?) that the first thing you see on their homepage is how many days it is until Christmas. They also have loads of hints and tips on Christmas decorating, even a recipe for making your own reindeer food which is very cute.
What’s your favourite Christmas tradition?
