Christmas Tree Roll Call


#1

I’m usually of the mindset that a Christmas tree shouldn’t go up until two weeks before Christmas, but Mrs HYG’s family would do it at the end of November, so as a compromise, we put it up this weekend.

Please check in to this thread to state:

  • If you have erected (heh) your tree
  • If it’s real or artificial
  • If real, what kind (Nordmann Firr? Norwegian?)
  • How big it is
  • Will you use a fixed collection of decorations, or are you one of those weirdos that gets new stuff every time for a different theme?

#2
  • Erected December 3rd
  • Real
  • Nordmann
  • 4ft-ish
  • Only have one actual ornament (a wedding present), so we bought baubles, lights and a star topper at Poundland.

#3
  • Our tree is not purchased or erected
  • A real tree will be purchased at some point soon
  • The real tree will be “dunno”
  • We will get a 2 footer
  • We have a bag of generic baubles, a couple of other bits and a photo of my old dog which goes on the top

#4

I am currently erection-free and intend to be for the foreseeable future.


#5

no
artificial
na
2 foot
no additional decorations required (fibre optic tree)


#6

Away from the 16th December so no Christmas tree planned. Might put some fairy lights on one of the plants next weekend.


#7
  • yes, it’s been erected (3rd December)
  • it’s artificial (we’re away for Christmas and don’t want to come back to a house full of dead pine needles)
  • it’s 6ft tall
  • we have the same box of decorations every year but we have a tradition of buying one new decoration each year. The colour scheme is red and silver but this has been compromised slightly post-parenthood.

#8

I have put up my small, white, plastic tree from Clas Ohlson.

I tend to add a couple of new decorations each year, but seeing as it’s only a tiny tree there’s a limit as to how long that can go on for.


#9

Two miserable blokes in a house share equals no decorations.


#10

Can I move in, please? I’ve got my own d20.


#11


#12

My housemate has never even seen a d20.

But assuming the sofa is ok with you, then yes.


#13


#14

Hmm. Is there at least space on the mantelpiece for my plaque?


#15
  • Erected some point this weekend by my GF
  • Fake
  • N/A
  • 4ft-ish
  • Fixed collection of decorations I think, not sure, don’t have anything to do with it

#16

Yes, that can have pride of place.

You’ll have to keep explaining to him what it is.


#17

NO DICE!


#18

I’ve got mine, obvs.

Haven’t needed them for the last couple of games. Dicestream innit.


#19
  • Erected yesterday (v early for us)
  • Real
  • Nordmann.
  • About 6’6"
  • Fixed collection - but it’s looking sparse so may pick up a few more bits if we spot anything.

Doing it tonight, pics incoming (it’s white and plastic and we usually stick the cats on top)
