Last year, our tree failed. We hosted Christmas, and when my mom arrived she asked, “Why isn’t your tree decorated? Where are the lights?”
“What? Tree? Huh? Where am I?…” I replied in a hostess-induced daze.
So, this year, we decided to start a new family tradition. The tree is to be lit on the feast of St. Lucy.
We plan to trim the tree Christmas Eve, in preparation for Jesus’ birthday. Kind of like decorating for a party!
Apparently, Mary’s not the only one preparing for a baby this season…
