For Christmas celebrations we hang and decorate a four foot wreath over our fireplace instead of standing a tree in the window. We get different responses to the wreath, but most often the question is why a wreath? Or what do you mean you don’t have a tree?
We have cats, I tell them. We use to have to tie our tree to the wall from two different angles to keep it from being tipped over. Even with the tree being anchored we’d be picking up decorations daily, certainly we couldn’t have any breakable trimmings.
One day, I found the wreath! Problem solved!
