My family never had a Christmas tree growing up. To be honest, I always thought they were kind of silly. It’s just a big tree with lights, and ribbons, and glass. What’s so great about that?
I mostly stand by that line of thinking, but I recently learned there are all sorts of Christmas trees, and some of them are actually extraordinary beautiful and others are unbelievably impressive.
This isn’t to say that I wish my house had a Christmas tree made out of people. I’m just saying that it would have been nice to have the option.
