I was sure I was going to be depressed around the holidays again. So, I bought this small branch from a Hobby Lobby, as well as a single ornament that I wrote the year on, a vase and filler pearls.

I put out the call for our Homies to send us their holiday decorations. Damnit, I want to see how y'all offbeat the holidays. And WOW did I get some amazing peeks into your homes. We've got alien-head tree-toppers, Mid-century Christmanukkah decor, beer ornaments, and trees that are both sideways AND upside down!

When it came time to decorate, though, my partner and I realized we didn't have any sentimental crap for the tree at all. So how do you make a tree special when you haven't yet collected sentimental ornaments? You use the keepsakes you have around the house!
