Getting the Tree Decorated with Better Furniture!

What a lovely time of the year, Getting the Tree Decorated with Better Furniture! I heard on the radio this morning a little girl on her countdown to Christmas day! Something we always done as children too, counting how many sleeps left till the day was here!
How funny that the tree comes out with its many branches all flattened and scrunched
together you discover how well you packed it away the previous year!
The baubles are missing all the hanging strings and the lights don’t work!

The Tree used at Christmas time is usually an evergreen conifer such as pine or fir.
In the 18th Century edible decorations would of adourned the tree, such as dried apples,
nuts or dates. They used candles until electrification saw more instant lighting on trees.
Can you imagine the fires that happened in those days due to the obvious naked flames
directly next to wood!

I have previously in my blogs spoke about pine, this is one more to add to its list of uses.

The pine tree is grown and cultivated on a massive scale and its end product is many.

Getting the Tree Decorated with Better Furniture! to some lovely old Christmas tunes!
I’m trying to make Christmas this year a little extra special for us and I have just completed three small Christmas puddings, last night I stayed up till late making sure the bowls of fruity goodness all had five hours of steaming time, I had no pan large enough to take all three, so they all had a separate saucepan and had to be checked to make sure they did not run dry!
You could of had a sauna in my kitchen last night with the steam!
My next mission is a sticky caramalised onion chutney to give away as presents!
With time so precious I find it a battle to keep Christmas home-made and traditional.

Have you got any ideas for doing this? I would love some suggestions?
Is anyone doing things a bit different this year?

Put the chocolate on a cutting-board. Powder both sides of it with cocoa.
