A Chinese Christmas Tree

I know I already posted pictures of my Bonsai Christmas tree...but our neighbors gave us what we really wanted; a Christmas orange tree!

We decked it out in colored lights, a rainbow of metallic mushrooms and the Christmas tree skirt I just finished and topped the whole ridiculous ensemble with a paper angel I found at the grocery store.

Orange trees are brought into every Chinese home to celebrate Spring Festival (or Chinese New Year as we call it in the U.S) so ours is a bit early, but if we can keep it alive until February it will bring us lots of good luck all along the way.
