I finally put up my Christmas tree, today.  Although I skipped last year, I usually setup my camera (or webcam) and do a time-lapse of the whole thing.  Here it is:

I used my Canon 60D with manual focus and auto mode along with an intervalometer.  I used MPlayer on GNU/Linux to combine the images into a video.  The interval between shots is 15 seconds and I encoded the video at 24000/1001 (film) FPS.

Also, no Christmas tree is complete without some Star Trek ornaments.  I've got the USS Reliant and USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D from an alternate universe):

Also, I had to replace 30+ bulbs, today:


I suppose next year I'll have to get a new tree.  Hopefully, the LED trees won't be so blue and I'll be able to pick up one of those.
