If you think about it, a lot of our holiday traditions are pretty weird. I mean, 'hanging stockings in front of the fireplace?' That's weird. Since this is my first Christmas in Central New York, I've come up with my own unique way to celebrate.

I live in an apartment building, and can't have a real Christmas tree. This is the first year that I don't have one, so I decided to take a different route.

I didn't want to buy an artificial tree, but I still wanted to get in the holiday spirit, so this is what I came up with.

Hey, at least I'm getting 'festive,' right?!
