This was in Reader’s Digest  in 2009 and I thought it was funny.

12 Funny Things Your Christmas Tree Says About You

What your lights, be they multi-colored, white, or blinking, reveals to holiday company, plus the meaning behind the ornaments you hang.

By Rebecca Munsterer from Reader’s Digest | December 2009

White lights: You ask houseguests to remove their shoes.

Multicolored lights: You’re an extrovert.

Blinking Lights: You have attention deficit disorder.

Homemade ornaments: You have lots of children.

Strung Popcorn: You have too much time on your hands.

Red balls only: You wish you lived in a department store.

Yellow star on top: You’re traditional.

Glowing Santa on top: You shop at Kitsch ‘R’ Us.

Cutoff top: You didn’t measure the tree.

Vague evergreen smell: You bought a healthy tree.

Strong evergreen smell: You sprayed your tree with Pine-Sol.

Just plain smelly: There’s a dead bird in your tree.

  1. hahahaha…let’s see, the only thing that applies to me is the white lights…I don’t require guests to remove their shoes but I do try to encourage them by example….

  2. Mwhaha! That is so funny! My ornaments are homemade (I have children indeed!) but there is nothing about a homemade tree…Ah!
