Yes I am. And here's the proof of the Chrissy-mas pudding with a tour of my very own tree. The ornaments have been saved since the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s... with honest-to-goodness real live lead tinsel. I always look for short-needled trees with strong branches, usually fir, with lots of open space so that ornaments can actually hang. That allows them to move and brings the tree to life. Because the heavily laden branches tend to sag and look sad, I tuck dried plant material (in this case wild teasels) to give the tree more upward motion. Beneath the boughs I drape a clean white cotton sheet saved for decades for this humble service. Like snow, nothing looks more honest or pure.

Kiko the Kangaroo cartoon "Skating on Thin Ice." Such memories.
