Christmas

Jason and I don't really like Christmas. We never truly have except for maybe when we were kids. Jason is much more a Scrooge than myself. I merely hate commercialized Christmas. I love celebrating the birth of Jesus. I love hymns. He hates all Christmas music. We both hate Jingle Bells with a fiery passion. 

But we both love Star Wars.

Our first married Christmas at the apartment we obviously didn't have much space, so I got a tiny (I mean 2-3ft tall) tree off of Freecycle and decorated it with Jason's old Star Wars action figures. I also made Star Wars snowflakes. It was a pretty magical first married Christmas.



Our second married Christmas, we were living with my grandma in order to save for a downpayment. We didn't bother getting a tree; we had nowhere to put it.

Which brings us to this year. Our third married Christmas, second Star Wars Christmas, and first homeownership Christmas. We got a 4.5ft tree for $25 in order to save money and get a nice deal on a "full size" tree for half price on the day after Christmas. I hope that pans out ;P

Chose to do Star Wars again because it makes us happy. We've discussed always having a "nerdy" or "fandom inspired" tree whenever we end up getting a full size.

Also, my mother in law gave us window "candles"... which I had been wanting to purchase, but was thrilled to inherit. I live the simplicity, also reminds me of my childhood. Jason is even ok with it!

So here's some pictures from this year.




ah :)

Merry Christmas from our house to yours!
