So put your crimbo tree pics up here guys so we can see how Christmas is celebrated around the world    king celebrate 

Here's a few of mine to get the ball rolling

Very nice looking tree there bud along with the rest it looks very festive and hey cookies:) For us we dont normally decorate the house we just put up a tree, well it took me awhile to do it this year in all honesty with all that happened in the last little while I really wasn't in the Christmas mood, But we decided with all we been through we were going to put up a tree and enjoy just being with each other as my wife is the best gift any man could ask for.
 
So here is our tree of course there has to be some star wars in it lol

This next tree we just bought this year for the bedroom . Julie collects coke stuff and was building up so many coke ornaments on our regular tree that we decided she needed a special coke only tree  What a Face

Hi Ryan - just so happens I'm a OSU fan too  cheers  The only sport I follow is Football but I have been a OSU fan since I went and saw Barry Sanders play a couple of games when I was a teenager  Very Happy   Records be damned , he is still the best pure running back to ever play the game in my personal opinion  Cool   (I also had 2 nephews that graduated from OSU in the last few years)

That Stormy in the pic is actually red , I guess the flash made him look a bit more orange  :scratch: 

here is a pic I posted in the customs thread ...
Your Christmas pics from around the globe Stormt18

I could easily do a OSU orange one for you though if you want one . Unfortunately I am out of beater Stormies to customize so it may take a little while before I come across one . Just PM me if you want to talk more about it  Very Happy

I could do one that is orange, I have a beater somewhere. Yes! Another fellow Poke Smile I'm such a massive fan, I'm a 3rd generation Oklahoma State alum and my first REAL full memories was Berry Sanders when I was 13 so we must be close in age. I'm heading to Dallas next week for the Cotton Bowl Smile

Yeah, he looks OSU orange in that one pic! Funny...

I completely forgot about this....
Since there isn't a straight "what SW I got for XMas" thread, I figured this would be as good of place as any....... (I hope)...........

But here is something straight out of my childhood my dad would always make for me around the holidays (my birthday is in Dec too).

He made this for me as a kid all the time with much more detail but this year, 30+  years after the last one I ever got, he whipped one up and asked me if I remember them as a kid and hell yeah I did!

"Wrapping-Saber" - made from the wrapping paper tubes... gotta love my pops!

Your Christmas pics from around the globe 11592012563_3582027916_b

This one is really shotty since the 'original' ones were pretty detailed but it was the thought that counted!

anyway..........

cheers!

Sorry for the late post.

We went light on the interior christmas decorations this year because of our new 2 cats (approx. 4 and 8 months old).  They actually toppled the christmas tree before I could get some pictures.  I actually went light on the exterior lighting this year as well.  The roofers are coming to re-shingle the roof next week, so I didn't want the decorations to get in their way.

Your Christmas pics from around the globe Img_0511

Christmas up at my mothers farm.  Where I grew up.  The farm been in the family since 1872, when the family immigrated from England.  The ice from the freezing rain storm is about 12 mm (1/2") thick on most of the roofs, and trees.  The one picture shows some of the typical damage to the trees in the area.  Then we went sledding with the kids, at the hill by the river.  We planted the pine trees in 1987 as part of our effort to re forest the river bank

I hope this works right.  I don't post pics very often, but James suggested I post some pics of my new Christmas deco in the yard.  I added some homemade lighted lightsabers crossing over the window after these were taken.  All of these pics are taken at night, but my flash was on.  the inflatables have lights in them that glow pretty decent on their own.
