Welcome back to another day in this month long Christmas celebration!
It's Christine, and today I bring you my most intense Christmas memory. :)
When I was a kid I badly (BADLY!) wanted to decorate the tree, but my older sister (she's 8 years older than me) had the privilege to do this. Well, when I grew up I started arguing about it. One year (I think I was something between 6 and 8 years old) this escalated and we didn't talk the entire Christmas eve. I stayed in my room crying and refused to go to church.
Well, in fact the family argued every year, just because we all were very excited and we kids had big dreams of the perfect Christmas eve. (Did you know gift-giving is on Dec 24th at night in Germany?)
In the end we all set down to eat and then entered the living room with the beautifully decorated tree, candle-light, presents and Christmas music. There was love and harmony and all the disappointment and arguing was forgotten. Every single year. :)
We always decorated in red - kind of traditional. Sometimes red and silver, but most of the time it was red and gold. (Christmas in the only time in year that I love gold...). I am a total non-traditional person, but I keep my family's traditions - I make the same food, I decorate the tree like my mom, my sister and later myself did and I listen to Christmas songs all day long.
Wel, I went with the red and gold decoration that was the most important thing for me when I was a kid. And this is the card I came up with:
Don't forget A Blog Named Hero has two $25 gift certificates from Simon Says Stamp, as well as some Hero Arts goodies to give away to random commenters on the blog.

Thank you for stopping by today! Make sure to swing on by tomorrow to see what Christine has to share - I know it will be awesome!
