Me: How great! (As I looked at the boxes of ornaments stacking up everywhere, and realized...) Oh.... ummmm... Star Wars?
CT: Yeah, and I have a few Star Trek ornaments too.
Me: Oh. (Looks like these are NOT going to go on my very traditional Christmas Tree.) Well... what an interesting Christmas tree you must have.
CT: Oh, I don't have a Christmas tree. I don't put these up. I just collect them.
Me: (Light bulb going on in my head)... Well, you have so many ornaments, why not have a Stars Wars and Star Trek Christmas Tree?

Here is today's finished product (and a couple of ornament photos):
