There she stands at 10 feet tall. She has 1,200 lights and over 1,100 ornaments (at last count) and rising each year. We typically decorate the week of Thanksgiving. It only takes about an hour to put the tree up; but it takes a full day to get it decorated. We actually have three Christmas trees in the house. The other two are much smaller and don’t take near the time. I add between 20-25 ornaments each year. There are still branches without ornaments, so all is good.
