Do you have a theme or do you prefer a random sort of tree?  Let us know!  Or better yet, share a picture of what you do. :)

I always call ours a Memory tree. Each ornament means something to us, a certain time in our kids lives (like when our son was obsessed with Woody from Toy Story!), places we've been or things we all like, our pets (past and present).

I don’t have a theme, but I do have to buy all new ornaments since mine were left behind in the move

Eclectic - I have ornaments from when I was a kid, all of my kids yearly ornaments for the past 39 years and many miscellaneous ones that I have added and collected throughout the years. It is a tree of memories - and that suits me just fine. :)

I don't normally do a theme. When my boys were growing up, I would buy them each an ornament every year that had something to do with what they were into that year...Bert & Ernie, Toy Story, Godzilla, band, etc. Since our older son bought a house and moved away I gave him all his ornaments to go on his tree. Since then I've just done blue & silver decorations. This year I think I want to do a beach theme.

My tree is decorated with all the ornaments my kids have made growing up.   A few special ones commemorating big events or lost love ones also.  I have a string of singing lights that I always use, and my angel tree topper was my grandma's.

Normally my tree is a bunch of ornaments from my youth and then the ones I have purchased with my husband as vacation souvenirs. This year though we are not doing our normal memories tree. We adopted a rescue dog recently and I don’t want to risk the special ornaments in case she doesn’t do well around the tree. This year we are just using red and silver standard ornaments (I originally got them ages ago when our first dog was a puppy and we were worried about the tree then too).

For years, everything on my tree and all of my in house decorations (except the Nativity) were Western. I had cowboy Santas everywhere! LOL.  I still love the cowboy stuff, but I slowly moved away from all of it, starting a few years ago. Now it's just "Christmas".  I do love the buffalo plaid and burlap. So there's quite a bit of that sprinkled throughout.
