To tree or not to tree – that is the question

The clock is ticking down towards Christmas day.

The lights are up on the house and Lizard’s donned his Santa hat.

We’re still kicking around the question of whether to put up a tree or not.

Since we no longer exchange gifts, it’s seems silly to me to put up the tree. If anything, it only serves to be a painful reminder of the loss of tradition in our family now that Mom and Dad are gone… Then, again, new traditions can always be reborn.
