FIR REAL: My friends Aoife and Rob's majestic Christmas tree
Is it just me, or are far more people sharing photos of their Christmas trees on social media than ever before? It also seems that we have re-embraced the tradition of sending Christmas cards, judging from the nice envelopes hitting the doormat this week.
The following Christmas trees are aesthetically pleasing, but seem a little cold.

In contrast, my friends Aoife and Rob's tree (pictured in all its glory at the top of this post) had me transfixed when I visited their home recently. It's a real Christmas tree decorated in ornaments which each have a story to tell. They pick up decorations on their travels, including India, San Francisco, Boston and Paris.
