Other than the Nativity scene representing the birth of Christ, the most noticeable figure of this holiday is the Christmas Tree. For many of us, we have childhood memories of decorating our trees each December. I remember the first year or two after getting married, how our new tree looked much different from my parent’s. But that’s okay, since both are very special.
Looking back, I don’t recall having a nice photo of our tree from growing up. So on my recent visit to my parents, I sneaked in and stole a moment in time, before the carnage of unwrapping began. Whether this is the tree or decorations I grew up with is not that important. It will still represent the tree I had as a child and will help keep those memories alive.
Merry Christmas everyone!
