Well the most hilarious thing happened our first christmas together.
While decorating the three, I told my husband to bend the top a little, so I could put the shiny, glass ornament on it (here we call them Spitzer, cause they look like ........ yeah, well sharp ice drops, oh ok, forget it) anyway, said to him but don't let the top of the tree out of your hands at once, pull it back easy.
Well of course he didn't and whhoaaaaammm, there went my beautiful Spitzer through the room and through the (closed of course) window, like a rocket through the sky, down on the street, 3 stories below!!!
OMG, I was just standing gaping and my hubby had a very stupid expression on his face too, then we both went to the (now broken and open) window and looked down on the street.......... there was our Spitz in the middle of a carhood, the sharp end bored itself into it. The car belonged to one of our neighbours, so we (still in shock) went to him to tell the story. He didn'T believe us, so we went down to the street to show him.
He just looked and started laughing right away and then we started too and couldn't stop anymore.
Thank God, we have a good home-insurance and they paid for the car, not for our window, which was boarded up over christmas, cause all the shops were closed for 4 days.
Now, we don't put on a tree anymore without having to repeat this story over and over, our daughter loves it of course!
So take care decorating your tree! Renee
