Favorite Quote:
"Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else." - Margaret Mead


Plastic needles lie on the floor,
waiting until the new year comes to be swept away.
Yellow lights are strung between the branches,
gifting the tree a glowing aura.
The smell of peppermint wafts in the air,
as the flames of scented candles flicker around the room.
Gold ribbons drape to the ground,
dangling from the top of the tree.
A gingerbread man hangs from a branch,
surrounded by a variety of ornaments.
Carefully wrapped boxes and colorful bags
sit in the shade of the tree,
waiting to be opened by their owner.
I feel the spirit of Christmas as I look at the tree.

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Thy leaves are so unchanging

Not only green when summer's here,
But also when it's cold and drear.
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Thy leaves are so unchanging!

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Such pleasure do you bring me!
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Such pleasure do you bring me!

For every year this Christmas tree,
Brings to us such joy and glee.
Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
Such pleasure do you bring me!

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
You'll ever be unchanging!
A symbol of goodwill and love
You'll ever be unchanging

Each shining light
Each silver bell
No one alive spreads cheer so well

Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree,
You'll ever be unchanging
