O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree...

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I love this time of the year! I know they put stuff out earlier and earlier every year but I don't care because its my favorite time! I'm not crazy about the commercialism of it all, don't get me wrong. I think its all about perspective though and its a visible reminder of my Lord and Saviors birth! Who needs more of a reason to celebrate than that! There's just something about it that evokes happy thoughts and no matter how bad things may be or how bad they're going to be, its impossible to be anything but happy! We've already gotten out the decorations and started decorating but we are no where near through!

Did you know that the first Christmas tree can be traced back to 1441! Traditionally, Christmas Trees were not brought in and decorated until December 24th or for those that celebrated the first day of Christmas, on the 23rd. Then they were removed after the 12th night, January 6th. It was even considered bad luck to have one up before or after these dates. There are still countries that follow their traditions, and ours would be...gurl, get that tree up!!!!

So how about some trees to get us in the spirit this morning!!!!!
