Christmas Tree (2003 -2010)
I grew up with a unique Christmas Tree. It’s made up of coconut leaf stick broom. We painted each strand of stick with white or gold or cover it with silver out of the cigarette packet. Then we cut circles in size of 25 cents out of colored paper. These circles are then glued in each stick about 3 inches distance and filled the stick from tip to tip. Then we’ll put all the sticks in one container. It looks like a fountain. My mom believed that it brings luck to our family.
It’s our dream to have a fancy pine tree inside the house. It was only realized last 2003. Since then we are using it. But we still have the Broom stick Christmas tree in one corner.
2003 - see that broom stick Christmas tree behind my mom?

We usually decorate our house every November 30, which is holiday back home, together with my nieces and nephews. I miss decorating our house for this year.
