It’s feeling festive in here. Advent calendar’s up, balsam candles are lit, lights are up on the fire escape, and there’s a happy little tree named Linus in my living room. For those of you familiar with Charlie Brown Christmas, hopefully you get the Linus, blanket-as-tree-skirt reference here.
At work, it can be hard to feel those holiday vibes, so having a pine-scented, twinkly apartment to come home to has been helpful to make the season feel more present.
Below are some pics of Linus in all his majesty.
Without a “proper” tree skirt, the best we had to work with was an old fleece blanket. Initially, I worried it looked a bit sloppy, but I love it! An unintentional Charlie Brown Christmas homage! Naming him Charlie Brown seemed a bit too obvious, so Linus it is. He’s the best one in that movie anyway.
No star to top this tree this year, so a birdhouse it is. Do what you can with what you’ve got.
