I know the experts say you shouldn’t use cutesy titles for your blog posts, but sometimes a person just can’t help herself, right?
I realized last week that I have not yet shared a fun little post-Christmas tradition that we have here. We always have a real Christmas tree, and once Christmas is over and done with, we find a spot in our backyard and set our tree up for the rest of winter. We pile the snow up around it until it’s reasonably straight and stable. And by we I mean my husband. Because, as you know, I’m all about hibernation in the winter, not going outside and doing crazy things with the Christmas tree. But anyway…
It pretty much stays green until spring, and we make little cheerio bird feeders like this:
and hang them on the tree for our little feathered friends to find. We also toss stale bread onto it, as well as any half-eaten peanut butter and jelly sandwiches we may have lying around.
We have seen lots of sneaky little squirrels stealing things and chasing each other around. :) However, as much as they might try, they don’t get it all! We have a great variety of birds munching on our treats too, and it’s been a lot of fun to watch our beloved Christmas tree and the activity around it this winter.
I just wanted to share. :)
Have a beautiful day! :)
