Hi guys! I’m very excited to let you know that my mom and I are decorating a Christmas tree for the Children's Hospital Festival of Trees this year!
Jillian Harris Design is donating the tree, and I’m enlisting your help to make this tree extra special. My idea is to do a “Global Community” theme and spotlight the beauty of all the different cultures around the world. I’ve already picked up my ornaments in blues and greens and I’m also planning to sprinkle the tree with globe decorations, including a big globe on the top of the tree.
I’ve noticed that a lot of my friends here on the site are from all over and I thought it would be fabulous to feature this global community during the holiday season!
So here’s YOUR assignment: Leave a comment below this post telling me what you love about your culture or heritage.
Please try to keep your comment to 150 characters maximum if possible. Also, if you’d rather handwrite your note, feel free- just scan your paper note and upload it to your JillianHarris.com profile, or take a picture of your note and upload the photo- whatever is easiest for you!
I will be printing all of your comments and hanging them on the tree with the rest of the decorations! Thank you in advance for helping me with this fun project, it means a lot to me to have friends from all over the world and I’m so excited to share your stories on the tree!
