    MOD NOTE - Post 315
    1. NO QUOTING PICS! - It's jarring and takes up space. Please don't quote someone's pic. Simply refer to them by name or remove the img tags. Quoted pic = instant post delete with no warning or notification.

    2. Please keep your photos below 800 pixels wide. - Giant photos are very annoying and disruptive. If you can't resize, simply post the picture as a URL link and people can click through to see. We will be editing peoples post to enforce this one, without warning or notification.

    3. Relevant discussion is allowed on thread, but "Love your tree" style posts break the flow of the thread are unnecessary. Spread the love with the thanks button instead.

    Not that great :(

    The top of it never looks very good but in our defense it is very difficult to decorate a tree while leaning sideways on a ladder! We do aim to have the tackiest tree ever, that's why there's no theme or symmetry :)

    Remember people, that's D4RK ONION for all your modding needs!

    Anywho that time I said I was going to go take a picture of my tree? Yeah, my parents were in the room watching tv and I didn't really feel like walking in and saying, "I'm just going to take a picture of this tree so I can show this forum (explan forum) I mod (explain mod) can see it (listen to "wasting my life" lecture), so as a redemption here's a picture of me pretending to be a Christmas tree!

    It's great to see everyones take on how they want their xmas tree to look, because everyone has the things they like, whether it be coloured lights, white lights, tinsil, no tinsil, etc etc, i love the diversity.

    The trees on this thread are great! My trees are just a mish-mash of odd decorations, some dating back to when we were babies! They're put to shame by the ones on here so I took some pics of other decorations in my house instead. My mam is obsessed with Christmas decorations so every spare inch of the house is covered in lights, holly, santa clauses, snowmen, etc.

    We got this lovely ceramic crib a few years ago:

    I bought these tree decorations for my mam in Harrods. They represent her love of shoes, handbags and Christmas:

    Finally, my Quentin Blake advent calendar :D (yes I'm a big kid!)

    Oh and I'm just fixing the lights but it kinda looks like I am kneeling down at a shrine or something....

    Not as nice as others on here but a good start considering it's our first tree. Using my mam's decorations (some are from the 70's :D)

    And here it is with lights off. Notice the people across the road have a way better display then us. But sure we're trying.

    Is that like a sort of post modern cubism tree, of a Pablo Piccasso persuasion?
