Christmas Preparations

My parents-in-law have a huuuuge pinus tree at their front garden. It is so big, that it partially occupy an area of their neighbour's garden as well. Ever year they decorate it for Christmas - and the neighbour provides the electricity.  A couple years ago it was elected by a local supermarket the most beautiful Christmas tree in the village, and my in-laws received a basket with liquor and Chritmas goodies (pate', chocolates, cheese, cookies, etc.) as a prize. Oh yes, they shared the basket content with their neighbours.

Work in progress: the star was placed on the top of the three last weekend. During this whole week my f.i.l. shall be busy with the decoration.
There he is, my father-in-law. Wondering how he reaches the top of the tree ? No, he doesn't use a ladder. He climbs it up from inside, like a squirrel: jumping from branch to branch, higher and higher !

Naaahhhhh....! He climbs to the top? My God, isn't that dangerous? The tree looks enormous!! I'm sure you can see the tree from outer space :P
Love the shot of your father-in-law peeking from inside the tree :D Very cute.

It is dangerous. He is the kind of guy that cleans the roof of his own house and the family is relaxed about it.
