Getting ready for Christmas 🎄

I thought I was Poplar

My sister forwarded a WhatsApp message about a Tree Astrology saying how close to the truth it was and all that 🙂 and not just for her own date of birth, but for the rest of us too.

According to that, I was born under Poplar Tree  (The Uncertainty) 🙄 Really? Was wondering what other kind of Tree astrology is there and I stumbled upon Celtic Tree astrology. And according to that I am more of a Willow (not the Whomping Willow from Harry Potter y’all) but Willow, the Observer. No more Uncertainty you see. So, as tree astrology goes, I thought I was Poplar yesterday, but looks like I am more Willowy today 😀

Some of the characteristics are true from both, I should agree. But just like every other astrology, I take them with a pinch of salt. It’s fun to read and all, but I will promptly forget about them too. No point remembering these details about my own self.

You like checking these kinds of astrological predictions? What tree represents you?


Another year, Another Beer Bottle Tree

Last year was the first time I saw this unique Christmas Tree, made of beer bottles. You can check out the post here. So this year, I went looking for it, to see if they did uphold that tradition. Sure, they have. Except that the brand of the beer bottles got changed this year, is all. And this year, I got a picture of the tree with three stars close to it. It was as if the stars were leading us to the tree 😉

This tree was made of…

When I was coming from my gym one night, I saw this tree near a Bar + Grill place. My first thought was ‘What the heck is that?’ and then on a closer look realized those were the empty beer bottles used to create a Tree and I couldn’t stop taking a photograph of it. And my friend informed that this was like a ‘tradition’ during Christmas time for that place to put up a tree like this.
People do surprise me with all their inventive ideas, that is for sure.
