A decorated tree for each holiday?

Does anyone decorate a tree, large or small, in honor of other holidays besides Christmas? For instance, a Valentines day tree? A St. Patrick's day tree? Halloween? I'm curious. I have a small 4 1/2 foot tree in my dining room that I'm considering leaving up and experimenting with.

What's your take on it?

Very pretty!!

We keep out a few small northwoods/lodge style trees year round. We decorate them w/ pines cones & silicone bulbs to give them a rustic/country look. We do turn them into Halloween trees as well in the Fall.

For many years I did an Easter tree with a real thorn tree that my Dad cut and painted white for my grandmother's 2nd wedding reception. It was their card tree with bluebirds attached.
So dad wanted me to have it and every year I got it out for Easter. One Easter when I was taking the tree downstairs one of the thorns pricked me and it hurt but I soon started crying not because it hurt but it made me realize how Jesus had the crown of thorns pressed on His head and how painful it must have been for Him and He did it for all of us.

I bought a 4 foot pre lit burlap base tree this year. I picked it out just so it would be my little year round tree. I love the idea of decorating it for all of the holidays. So cute!

I had a tree up once for Valentines Day and decorated it with hearts and white lights. I should get that out again.

I did buy a little bag full of wooden Easter decorations at a thrift store last week for only 50 cents! They are really cute so now I need to decorate a tree for Easter!

I've been enjoying it. My son and I have been making homemade ornaments for St Patricks day and Easter as well. I've also went and bought a few things. Last night we had our little tree lighting night. It was fun!

Yes, I did this for a couple of years. I continued to decorate my little pink tree with white lights, but changed out with seasonal decorations like homemade valentines, etc.
It was very cheerful and made the winter seem not so long after Christmas had passed.
