I love the sense of celebration and festivity that a Christmas tree brings to the season. There are a few Christmas trees I see on a regular basis and their beauty always brings joy to my heart. The first is the tree I see in the lobby as I enter the apartment building where I live:
This year I am working at a school that puts up a Christmas tree – even though many of the students are non-Christian. The children enjoy looking at the tree every time we pass it on the way to assembly, gym, music or the library. I appreciate seeing it as I come into work as it helps to remind me that, even though we are busy, we can take time to reflect on what the season is about.
When I walk down one of the streets within my neighbourhood, I pass an outdoor Christmas tree. The tree lights up the street and brings a sense of colour to a cold, winter’s night.
The best tree I see each day is the one we have at home. It is small and yet has been lovingly decorated each year by my children. The tree definitely brings the season’s atmosphere into our home.
I enjoy looking at Christmas trees and the ways in which they have been decorated.
