Our trees are big conglomerations of different things. We have a very small artificial tree (we named him Chuck when we got him because it made us think of the Charlie Brown tree and it was all we could afford so it became part of the family) that is decorated with lots of tiny little ornaments we bought along with a few very precious personal ornaments my husband and I got for each other and our daughter. He has a video game controller, I have a cupcake, our daughter has a hand painted candy cane with her name and birthdate and as a couple we have a slice of watermelon. We have also had a formal large tree in burgandy and gold and large trees with anything we thought looked good! It depends on how we feel that year----which I love!
