OK- someone has to be first. Here is our tree. My favorite ornaments are the angels with the map and the newspaper we brought back from Iceland. It was a priority for my wife to have Christmas ornaments from there- close to the North Pole.
Merry Christmas, everyone!

Here is our tree. I can't say I have a favorite ornament as most of them remind me of something...our (now young adult) children growing up, mementos from vacations, and gifts from friends and family. I also have a pretty big nativity collection, from the fancy Hummel set that I inherited from my grandmother, to ornaments on the tree, ceramic, quilted, tole painted, and even candle holders.

This is our tree, new this year. This us our 2nd pre-lit tree, the branches are "dusted" (much more heavily than anticipated) with "snow". I really think over time, some or a lot of the fake snow will just come off. The tree also had pine cones wired to the branches. I decided to use mostly red ornaments, and, of course, all of the special ones we've bought over the years. I get a new ornament from every place I visit, and as our last name is "Rabbitt", I also collect rabbit ornaments, give rabbit ornaments, and try to get at least one new one every year!

This is our tree. Pre-lit, with only red & gold ornaments from my travels and also made with love from my son. The best part is decorating it with him. Only a few hours to go here in Sydney!

Here is my silver living room tree. I have no favorite ornaments on this tree. Sadly, I was robbed years ago and the creeps stole all the boxes from my garage. Imagine their disappointment when they opened them and found nothing but my Christmas ornaments. I'm sure they threw them all in the nearest dumpster, but it was 20 years worth of treasured memories to me. The tree in the family room is red and gold and has my collection of 28 years of the White House Historical Society Christmas ornaments.

Here are mine. We have a real and silver one in our living room (the colours are grey and teal up there) and then a more traditional tree with reds, greens, whites, golds, in the basement.

My favourite ornaments are those that have meaning - our wedding, engagement, new house, first ornaments, etc.

(There is a filter on these obviously - took a screenshot from Instagram)

Here's ours. I tried to make a bow for the top, but it just didn't work out. The mesh got a little messed up the other day while we were rescuing one of our cats. She got herself so tangled up in the lights we had to cut a branch off with wire cutters to get her untangled.

Cannot believe it but life happened the last few weeks and our beautiful little concolor fir we brought home almost three weeks ago still sits in a bucket in the corner of the great room. But sports injuries and broken arms and torn ligaments heal, and cars can be replaced; we are counting our blessings that coming off of a concussion there were no brain injuries for either of my dearest guys. (And guess who's getting a new SUV for Christmas...)

We are expecting a big crowd tonight and in addition to a birthday celebration and sharing our traditional meal of pupu, our guests are offering to help set up and trim the tree.

We always buy a fresh silver tip and put all of our precious ornaments on whether or not they are pretty. They are all precious and filled with memories. Themed trees are meaningless IMO.

Our tree. No rhyme or reason to it, just a collection of antique ornaments, ornaments from our childhood, and sentimental ones for our spouse and children. I love the random assortment, with no forethought and no design scheme. Our tree is a higher end artificial tree with 1000+ pre-lit lights with realistic looking boughs and branches. We absolutely love it!

My tree is a Coastal Victorian theme to match my house in Padre Island, Texas. Complete with pressed tin & wood scrolled ornaments, starched crocheted snowflakes and angels, boa feathers, seashells and chandelier crystals. My favorites are the cowgirl mermaid and SCUBA Santa

Both my kids love blue so we went winter wonderland this year. Usually we like to keep things simple around the house but we've been known to go all out for our Holiday decor. Our decor is always a family affair and the star of the show is always our tree. The bigger, shinier or studded ornaments hang from several ornamotions so they spin when we turn the lights on. They really look magical and everyone who comes over loves them.

Our Christmas tree. This was the first year when it was decorated mostly by our three year old with a little help from parents. The tree is real, decorations - inexpensive - so the main decorator can do his job in stress free environment. Horse has been with us for several years now - we did give it a scarve as a nod to coming "blue horse" year (Chinese calendar)

Is this cheating? A tree I drew for a Christmas card a couple of years ago when I was dreaming of the austere landscape of parts of my country. It's very dark, I hope it's visible when posted. All I have in my living room is a branch with two hearts hanging on it, so I suppose there's a minimalist somewhere in me.

So many beautiful trees shown. I am having a quiet Christmas this year, no family in town, so I only did two trees & cut way back on the Christmas decor (less to put away next week). For the last few years I have been collecting wine ornaments, what else living in the San Francisco area. So now I have a wine tree that is in the living room. It is done with gold, burgundy & green. In the kitchen I have my Portmeirion tree to go with my Christmas dishes. Next year the family is coming so I will spend weeks decorating. I hope every one has a very Merry Christmas.

I should have explained more. The living room tree has hand painted birds and animals (I add some every year) and family ancestor pictures in frame ornaments, the guest room tree has waterford crystal seahorses which I've just started to collect to match my beach themed cottage, and the third one is in the desk area of my attic bedroom. It is decorated with fun things like dogs and trains that I have gathered over the year.

We usually have two trees. I call the one in the living room the "fancy foo-foo" tree. It is a silver tree with white lights and burgundy, white and silver ornaments. The other tree goes in the family room and is a traditional, real, cut tree with multi-colored lights and all the ornaments we have collected over our 40+ years of marriage. My favorite ornament is one I have had since I was a little girl - a white felt mitten decorated with sequins. Because we recently moved from Ohio to Illinois, we just couldn't get it together enough to put up the second tree, but hope to have it on display next year. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!

Here is our little tree - it is potted so we can plant it and enjoy it all year. I had a dilemma with the tree topper, so my husband came up with this. Our tree has lots of bears so he had some climbing to the top - I gave him a hug for that! Merry Christmas!
