A Christmas tree has many cherished functions during the holiday season.
The lights add a shimmering glow to the room, matching the expectation of the celebration ahead. Presents chosen with love nestle beneath the pine scented boughs. Ornaments rich with memories hang from the branches, mark Christmases past, but leave room for future memories.
The scent, the sights, the feel of a Christmas tree are deeply etched into our hearts and minds.
My kids added one more cherished function for our Christmas tree this week.
but the pictures on the camera told a story their lips didn’t.
