The main highlight is, of course, the tree. Molly and I picked out a beautiful Christmas tree last Sunday. Lunenburg County Nova Scotia is the Xmas tree capital of the world, so we can get one for a really good price. My fat beauty cost me $25. Look at her! Isn't she gorgeous!
And here are some of my old friends on the tree: the peasant couple from Austria; Ernie and Snoopy were early Xmas gifts from my husband; the little wooden bird was made by an old gentleman in Dartmouth & I've had it for 30 years; 2 of the 12 wooden ornaments that my sweet German daughter Nadine sent me last year; my gilded pear and strawberry; and my new ornament from my trip to PEI this summer with my parents..
O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,
O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
