We have a family tradition Dizzy.

No matter where we all are, what we are doing or who we are with..........at 12 noon, we all raise a glass to family members, both past and present.

I am usually a wreck by about 11.30am just thinking about it.

Txt messages are sent all over the place just past 12.........just so that we let each other know that we remembered everyone.

It always makes me sad..............but it's what we do. x

I think we all like our Christmas tree to "look good" Sylvia :-D to our own tastes, for some that will be perfectly co-ordinated colours, or 'themes', for others it will be the old decorations that are a bit tatty, for those with children it may be the bits and bobs that the kids make, for Dizzi it might be the baubles that have her family's names on that will look good to HER.
