Hugh’s Photo Challeng: Week 8 – Charity Christmas Tree Topper Challenge

I could not resist taking part in this awesome Christmas Tree Topper Photography Challenge run by the lovely Hugh, from Hugh’s Views & News. This year he is donating to The Dogs Trust.

Here is my tree topper…

I bought this star in January 2000 from Tenerife, and it has shone from the top of my tree every year since. It was the year of my grandfather’s 70th birthday and the whole family went on a cruise to the Caribbean. At the time I was saving to get married, so I bowed out and took a trip to visit my Aunt instead (I didn’t miss the party. He was a Christmas baby, so we celebrated in style!)

In Tenerife, celebrations generally start on the 24th of December and continue until January the 6th. As I flew out on the 27th of December, I timed the festivities perfectly and had an absolute blast! I tasted local cuisine with my Aunt’s friends, and didn’t come back down to earth (there was a lot of drinking), until a few days after I arrived.

The atmosphere was wonderful, and it’s always enjoyable to experience another culture. I learned so much on the trip. I also bought some great decorations, starting with my star.

Thanks for stopping by.

Merry Christmas or, sticking with a Spanish theme – Feliz Navidad.

  1. Hi Mel. What a wonderful tree topper and what a wonderful story about it and your trip to Tenerife. It sounds like you had the best of times.

    Thank you so much for participating in my Christmas Tree Topper challenge in aid of The Dogs Trust. By participating you have helped us get nearer out target and also helped give a homeless dog a meal. Thank you. 🙂

    Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas.
    Seasons Greetings.
    Hugh 🎅

  2. That’s a great story behind the ornament. Those always seem to be the most important pieces to a tree. I had friends who would explain each story as I helped them set things up too, so it was fun.

I’d love to hear from you.
