Christmas Trees: Creative Symbols of Light and Hope


 

Wordless Wednesday

Christmas trees: We have decorated some of the funniest, oddest looking trees, cut from the wild. Last year the trunk was crooked, which was a source of great amusement to all; that poor tree was the subject of constant jokes for the entire holiday. One year I coerced my husband into drilling a hole in the trunk and wedging one of the lower branches into a huge gaping hole, to make the tree look a little less like a Charlie Brown sort of tree. My creative thinking actually redeemed that Christmas tree. This year, because my husband is recuperating from surgery, the kids bought a beautiful, cultured, farm grown tree off a Christmas Tree lot. It is perfection. Tomorrow some kids are driving out to help decorate. Here is a picture salute to a Christmas tree from  Christmas past; a pictorial ode to all trees be they stubby or tall because all trees are creative  symbols of light and hope.
