I have this nice bush tree that I put up
a couple of weeks ago and strung lights on about a week ago. But for various reasons — too busy, too lazy — I have yet to decorate it. And it’s Christmas Eve day. So I’m telling myself that it’s a family tradition not to decorate the tree until Christmas Eve. Fake Tradition. But it’s probably less farfetched than claiming I’m Ukrainian.
UPDATE: Decorated it this afternoon, so I guess we’re back to admitting I left everything to the last minute instead of claiming that I follow the Eastern Orthodox liturgical calendar. Happy Christmas all, or happy whatever you celebrate. If you’re Ukrainian, please put this message in the refridgerator and take it out again January 7.
