Christmas Photo I Like Uncategorized

Beautiful Christmas

I occasionally indulge myself in “willful preoccupation” by scouring the internet for holiday spirit, particularly in holiday form. One of my favorite Christmas photo themes is “other peoples’ holidays”.

Photo I Took

Eleven Years Ago…

…we bought a particularly nice tree from this unsavory character. I made the mistake of saying, “hey, toss me that tree over there…” Opps.


Man, does time go fast. The semi-feral six-year old ragamuffin making sure the tree is safely nestled in the bed of our truck is going to college next year…

Here’s what’s on Top of my Christmas Tree – what’s on Yours?

Hugh, over at Hugh’s Views and News, is sponsoring a Christmas charity event–for every person who blogs a photo of what’s on top of their Christmas tree he will donate £1–up to £250.  That’s about $390 bucks in US Dollars–a significant amount.

So, all you need to do is to snap a shot of the top of your tree–whether it’s a star, an angel, or a bobblehead replica of NASCAR star Rusty Wallace in a cocktail dress–and link back to Hugh’s post, where he’s helpfully included specific directions that cover whatever I’m forgetting.

So, let’s get the money out of Hugh.  We’ve got a tin star on the top of our tree, just like a Sheriff in the Old West.  What do you have?  When you post, stick a link in my comments section so we can take a look at your tree top
