As far back as I can remember, it has been our family’s tradition to decorate our Christmas tree on the 8th of December — my sister Maissie’s birthday. Now that we live thousands of miles apart, she asked that we sort of keep the tradition alive together by posting photos of Christmas trees on her Facebook timeline along with our usual birthday greetings.
Of course, true to form, I am now a day late for the party. Good thing I have these in my photo files. I hope this more than makes up for it, sistah. 🙂
(Photos were taken at the 2012 Festival of Trees at the NYPA Power Vista Center in Lewiston, NY. Non-profit groups decorate the trees during this annual festival. The little girl is my niece Cassie who dresses way better than any of her aunts. 🙂)
