"2008 Christmas Tree Blog Parade"

2:24 PM

I read this Christmas Tree Blog Parade from very famous blogista Kengkay and immediately wanted to join. Kengkay's blog is so hilarious in an unassuming ways and that's why I read her entries everyday!

I digress. Back to the Christmas tree.

For this year's entry, I got a bit confused wether to post the Christmas tree in Kuwait or the ones we have in Davao. After much deliberation, I decided on the one in Davao because... well I was in Davao until recently. Hehehe.

Our Christmas tree is artificial and all the ornaments are store boughts but the shrewed planning involves loads of creative juices that none of us in the house got.

Our Christmas Tree in Davao, All Lighted Up!

I realized that I need at least 3 different shot angle of the tree for this blog parade but as of this writing, I'm already in Manila and the brothers are already in GenSan so there's no way to ask for another shot. Sorry =P

It was an old 4 feet artifical tree from last year that my mother bought for my brothers since most of the time we're in Kuwait and the brothers are left here because of their studies. To liven it up, I decided to buy artifical red Poinsettias ( I think they're really really pretty! ) and gold ribbonettes of different sizes. I also added yellow lights together with the old red and blue. A golden Angel with a harp sat on top of the tree.

What's so special about my tree? Well it was all done with a sisterly love for my brothers whom I know will spend Christmas here in the Philippines all on their own. I made that tree in a mad rush because I wanted to surprise them when they get home from school. Granted they won't see the Tree all lighted up on Christmas day but I hoped that by just seeing it on their way out of the house, they could feel the festive spirit of Christmas.

I realized everyone in the blogosphere must have posted one way or another about their Christmas trees but if you're one of those who hasn't, well here's your chance!

This is the 2nd Annual OTWOMD Christmas Tree Blog Parade 2008 Meme created and conceptualized by OTWOMD of Bluepanjeet.Net The purpose of this meme is to enliven the Christmas spirit by showing to the world our very own Christmas trees. They say that it is on the Christmas tree that best describes how a person celebrates his or her own Christmas.

This meme was originally conceptualize in order to:

  • Promote the spirit of Christmas around the blogosphere
  • Spread awareness of the true meaning of the Christmas Tree
  • Encourage the family members to have a bonding around the Christmas tree
  • promote Christmas cheer and camaraderie among bloggers
Everyone can join regardless of nationality, race or religion. Even Atheists are welcome to join. So here are the rules:
  1. Copy the Logo of this meme and resize it that will best fit your blog or according to your desire and post it on your entry. You can also embed the official video presentation of Last year’s blog parade in your current entry (optional) Located HERE.
  2. Take a photo of your Christmas tree inside your house not smaller than the size of 500×375 pixel (for cropping purposes for the parade). It would be better but not required to at least take three different shots of the three (landscape, portrait and detailed shots). A whole body shot of the Christmas Tree is the most appropriate photo. And then post it on your blog entry.
  3. Shots

  4. Tell something about your Christmas tree like who decorated it, what are the ornaments and accessories, or what is the theme and meaning of your Christmas tree this year.

  5. You can put any title on your meme but don’t forget to include “2008 Christmas Tree Blog Parade”.

  6. Do the link train history for the purposes of tracking. Last year there were people who where not included because the people who tagged them did not do this link train (Please refer to last year’s blog Parade). Put the link of your previous bloggers who tagged you and your own link, Example: Tag History: Bluepanjeet - “you” -

The link train will provide clue on “who tagged who” and at the same time a reference of data for the creator of this meme.

On The feast of the Epiphany (Three Kings) on January 4, 2009 (The official ending of the Christmas Season), Bluepanjeet.Net will will feature all of the participant’s Christmas trees for 2008 with a link back to their site. That is why it is very vital that you maintain the link history so that your Christmas tree will be included in the Christmas tree blog parade of 2008.


1) Christmas tree photos used last year cannot be used this year. Your Christmas tree photos should be current.

2) You can do this on your other blogs if you have two or more blogs provided that the people tagged on one blog should not be tagged on the second blog etc etc. each blog should have a different set of people to be tagged.

So tag now, you only have one month to spread this meme.

My Christmas Tag History: Bluepanjeet - Kengkay - Mackay - "and YOU" (Put your linke here)
