Hokie Tree

This weekend, we started decorating for the holidays. While Tim was working outside on the lights, I was working inside on our decor. The Hokie tree was my first project. We have been collecting ornaments for about 10 years, but we didn’t have our official orange Hokie tree until 2010. Each year, we get a few more ornaments to add to this tree, and I think we have gotten to a great amount and variety.

A family friend made this. Yes, she MADE this for all of us in our tailgating group!

I gave Tim this snowman probably about 8 years ago.

I painted this at a pottery place a few years ago.

My students gave this to me 2 years ago when we first got a Hokie tree. It is hard to see in the pictures, but it is orange AND maroon!
