Yes it's bright, but it's festive. He's offend me, said I have no taste! No taste? He knows nothing!!

We need a photo!

HECTheHeraldAngelsSing Sun 08-Dec-13 15:12:06

oh yes, we need a picture.

My tree, when it goes up, will no doubt look like an explosion in a tinsel factory. A million miles away from the tasteful trees pre-kids, but I don't mind. They love doing it.

Tinsel is still the done thing is it not?

Who cares?

Taste goes out of the window at Christmas anyway!

Who the heck cares?! A tree without tinsel is like Morecambe without Wise or Ant without Dec.

He has visions of fresh cut trees with gingham ribbon.

I covered 7ft of fake tree in tinsel, beads, lights and baubles.

Our tree looks like a tribute to Liberace. Tacky tacky tacky! I love it.

Christmas trees are supposed to be tacky and fun.
I hate those sodding corporate trees, all designered and matching! Honestly they're awful!

All Christmas decorations are tacky.

I love everything and everything in all colours on a tree.

I just put mine up. It's got tinsel, coloured lights, a polar bear and meerkats with santa hats, a squirrel and loads more.
It's luffly.
