After two week or so of preparetions, we finally installed the Christmas tree. It took me about two hours to assemble and decorate it. I was doing the manual work, while Olga was giving artistic instructions and adding stylish touches. Maxim was also very helpful by staying out of the way for the whole process.
This year we also bought some lights for the Christmas tree. Since we weren’t looking for anything special, we settled for the cheapest ones in Ermes. They turned out to be very basic – no blinking of any kind, and no colors. Just a bunch of small lights connected to a power cable. Nothing else.
At first, we were disappointed that we didn’t check what was in the package, but when everything was set – we liked it. They turned out to be really good. The tree already had too much and blicking or colors would have been overdoing it.
I’ll post some pictures later this week as I am off to the cinema today…
