Red Chili Christmas Tree

Red Chili Christmas Tree


My wife and I really enjoy our tradition of a Red Chili Christmas Tree.  You guessed it we decorate with gifts from Mother Nature.  The chill’s are grown near here in Hatch NM.   We have collected pine-cones while on hikes throughout the state and the star on top of the tree is made of grapevine. The small berries and red apples are store bought.  No bows, balls or tinsel are to be found on our tree it’s all back to nature for us.

So what’s your Christmas Tree tradition?

John, That is a great tradition.  I love the idea of decorating with the red chili peppers.

Well I must say you have taken loving Albuquerque to a whole new level! Love it. As for me I love special ornaments from family and friends and use them each year. Some are over 40 years old. :0)

Beautiful tree John! Makes me regret making a decision to forego the tree this year. We are donating the money to charity that would have purchased our tree. We're empty-nested and going to one of the children's houses for Christmas, where they will have a tree!

Hi Kristin,  Thanks for your being so kind, I hope I get to see your new kitchen Christmas tree, its always fun to see how other trim the tree!

Hello Belinda,  We have Chili Ristras and other Chili decor in our main living area sot he Chili idea was not hard to come up with.  It fits what we do. Thanks for you compliments..always appreciated!

Hi Ron and Alexandra,  Mother nature created the tree so why not adorn it with other things el natural. Glad you enjoyed!

Hi Joan,  We enjoy the look and feel!  The coloring is perfect for our decor and feel!

Hello Dawn,  Its fun to prepare the Chili for the tree, pick it, dry it, varnish them and run hangers through the stems.  Good fun!

David,  That is the best part of tree trimming, they are all as unique as we are individually!  I'm sure your tree is awesome!

Erika,  Mixing it up a bit during the season keeps it all interesting, we don't want to all do the same think..do we?

Gary,  Glad you like the concept of the Red Chili Tree.

Hi Martha,  Oh I know those treasured ornaments all have such special meaning and bring back all those memories from days gone by, my Mother is classic at doing just that!

HI Vickie,  I love the idea you are donating to those in need in lieu of the tree.  Someone will appreciate your gift and you still get to enjoy a family tree with your kids.
