On December 1, Spousal Unit and I put up our tiny little Christmas tree.
The tree topper (at least for this year) is composed of our wedding cake toppers, which I purchased on Etsy. They are Ashitaka and San, from Princess Mononoke. Most adorable cake toppers/ornaments ever.
This is a German decoration, called a Sternelicht, or "star light." It's all paper, with decorative holes cut out and lined with red tissue paper. You put lights inside it, and it glows beautifully.
I have to pull out my German dictionary and make sure I read the directions correctly, or else I may burn down the apartment. And I think that would be frowned upon.
