Microfiction Monday #62: Show Offs!




Muffy was miffed!
The invitations clearly read
“Come deck the halls with boughs of holly”
Jack and Jill with their fatted pig
Was over the top! 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am so late with Christmas this year! Can you tell?


My poor bare tree. 
At least it's a pre-lit tree
so not untangling lights this year.


My dining room contains decorations
that still need to be put up, along with things that need 
to go into storage until after Christmas.

I'm off to complete my Christmas shopping, then it's tree trimming time. So if you don't see me for awhile I think you'll understand!

Funny MM! Better late than never! In other times and places, the tradition is/was to decorate the tree Christmas Eve - so for that you're early! :)

Tina said...

LOL on the microfiction. And your dining room is almost an exact copy of my family room the week I was decorating...

SouthLakesMom said...

Don't you just hate one-up-man-ship? Happy Christmas!

I see almost every tree is pre-lit these days. Do you ever have to replace bulbs? If one goes out do the rest stay on?

Cheryl said...

Great job, Polly.

About that tree and those boxes of decorations? Oy.
