We're poor college students, we have no money for booze let alone a Christmas tree. So my crazy roommate took a string of lights and wound them around our tall green lamp. In the window is a cheesy light up Santa that waves at all those who walk by. Little, wrapped presents lie under our make-shift tree. Soon there will be more once I get some colorful newspapers to wrap them in; I'm too cheap to buy real wrapping paper. Today it even began to snow.
