Something new in the house!

So my humans brought something strange and new into the house. It's not very big, but it's green. It kind of looks like some of the trees outside, but it has no smell, and no taste. My human dad doesn't like me chewing on it. But I had to find out what it was!

Next, my humans put these glowing bulbs on the green thing. Sometimes they glowed, and then they would stop glowing. Very odd. They then hung a bunch of long, dangling stuff on the green thing (the tree?), and for some strange reason, they didn't want me playing with it! But they were all shiny and sparkly and dangling - just the kind of things I like to play with!

After that, my humans put some balls (I know what those are!) on the green thing. Again, they didn't want me playing with them. Tell me, what good are balls if you can't play with them? Silly humans. Finally, they put a nice, soft blanket around the base of the green thing.

My humans said that this is just a small green thing (I think they called it a Christmas tree.) They told me they have a bigger one, that I'll see in a couple of years when we are in Canada. They were telling me something about lights, and how their bigger one has these lights pre-installed, but because the power supply (I think that's what they called it) is different here in Germany (my humans are from Canada) they couldn't use their big tree here. So since we'll only be in Germany for three years, they decided to buy a small tree, instead of spending a lot of money on a big tree that they'll only use three times. Makes sense to me - it means they have more money to buy me toys and food!

I like your tree a lot, Dragonheart! Can I teleport over and play with you under it since we don't have one yet (and Mom doesn't know if she trusts me enough to put one up)?

I'll be good. I promise. (Dangly things, huh?)

We really like your tree. We love the dangly things too. Our tree is in the living room but it's still just a tree, not a Christmas tree yet. But there are lots of boxes in there with shiny balls and sparkly stuff. We can't wait until it goes on the tree!

We have a large and a small tree. I think you need a lovely red carpet under that tree to really make it nice for our, Dragonheart.

Yours doesn't look as scary as ours. Ours almost touches the ceiling. You are VERY VERY cute Dragonheart, I just want to snuggle with you to keep you extra warm!

Be careful, Dragonheart. That thing's a lot bigger than you and we don't want it to fall on top of you. Also, don't bite the wires!

Everyone is getting these! We have an old ratty one, but it just stays in the same place! I must talk to my Meowm about getting a new one!
