The Children Are Elsewhere

December 25, 2022

There are no children at this year’s family Christmas, so no rush to get up and get going. I’m typing as quietly as I can since one of the nephews is sleeping in another part of this semi-open concept space. A few other people are awake and moving about in a restrained manner while we wait for the whole crew to assemble. Later we’ll have presents and feasting and games and other family activities. Now I’m going to share some of the Christmas trees I’ve seen this past week, starting with the top two-thirds of mine, seen here with an effect that happened unintentionally but which I like.

Top portion of a slim Christmas tree decorated with mostly white lights, a light up star, and random ornaments. The photo has diagonal streaks of light coming off the lights on the tree.

This was in the lobby of the hotel we stayed a night at, next to the breakfast area where we did not get breakfast because that ended too early for the likes of us:

Christmas tree with colored lights and a lit star decorated with large ornaments and a golden tulle garland wrapped around the tree.

From a Mexican restaurant:

Christmas tree with white lights and branches instead of a star or angle at the top. It's decorated with blue, silver, and white ornaments and ribbon draped vertically.

A twinkling fiber optic tree at my sister-in-law’s house, in one of its color moods:

Small fiber optic Christmas tree with a red tree skirt. The lights at the end of the branches are mostly white at this moment with some turquoise and pink in some areas.

Merry Christmas to those who are celebrating on this day!
