We have several trees in our house but the real tree is our REAL Christmas tree. It is a simple country tree set in an galvanized tub.
Another simple tradition that I love is to visit the live Nativity our church sponsors. This year it was made all the more special as our daughter played the roll of Mary. To just gather and stand around the manger, everyone drawn to celebrate the birth of Christ. No flashy show, no live music, just a beautiful celebration of Christmas.
I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and one full of simple pleasures.
