Christmas Tree, 2016 Edition

December 25, 2016

Christmas tree

I can’t remember the last time Mr. Karen and I put up a big Christmas tree; in recent years the fascinating fiber optic table top version has served us well. But this year we did put up a big tree, a skinny artificial one my mom gave us because she thought it would look nice in our downstairs entry hall, and decorated it with ornaments that survived our holiday décor purge before we sold our Michigan house. We’ve traditionally had colored lights on our big trees, but this one came prelit with white so we’re doing that now. The ornaments have some plain, traditional shiny balls in the mix, but most are quirkier, things we’ve bought or been given over the years that remind us of places we’ve been and people we love, or that just make us smile.

Merry Christmas to those of you celebrating today, and Happy Hanukkah. Whatever you are celebrating, whenever you are celebrating, I hope it fills your heart with joy.
