Christmas in January?!

Love it or hate it...what's the protocol kids?
 
Is sharing Christmas pictures in January taboo,
even when they contain awesomeness?
 
Well this girls going to do it, one more time,
because I just love these images.

I just knew it was going to be a great day and it was.

The National Christmas Tree
United States Botanic Garden
This is one of the largest indoor trees in Washington,
looking very lovely in purple.

This place is a must see at Christmas,
it will absolutely take your breath away...

Here's a peak at the small village beneath the tree,

the lighting, color and detail were simply amazing!

If your ever in the Washington area, especially at Christmas,
don't miss the United States Botanic Garden.

  1. I have an aunt by marriage who grew up in Serbia, and they put up the tree on Dec. 24, Uncle's birthday, so it will still be fresh for Orthodox Christmas, some 10 or 12 days later. Usually, they have finished the decorating by then. Then they have a tree undecorating party late in February.

  2. I'm a 'Christmas makes me happy all year round' kinda gal! So these photos make perfect sense to me! LOVE the colors! I always imagine myself doing something NOT red/green/gold at Christmas...and then either chicken out or am just not sure how! These colors inspire me! (and you and Chuck are cute too!)

  24. Lovely pictures and I enjoyed seeing them in January. I have a hard time letting Christmas go each year. The trees were so beautiful. What a fun Christmas adventure.
    Here in Salt Lake they have a Christmas Festival of trees that are decorated and purchased and the money goes to the Primary Children's hospital. They are all decorated in so many different ways. Next year I will go and take some pictures and post them.
    Blessings!
