What ornaments would you hang on a Christmas tree if you wanted to express your interests? What would your tree look like if you went beyond the red globes and gold bows?
Last night we went to San Diego’s December Nights in Balboa Park. Thousands showed up at the huge playground of museums and theaters built for the 1916 International Exposition. We took in holiday concerts and cruised the Air and Space Museum. What fun to wander with the crowds on a chilly evening! We ducked in one building, mostly to get warm, and we found a festival of Christmas trees. Decorated by different organizations, the trees represented the interests of each.
What about you? If you could go with a theme that’s dear to you, what would your tree look like this season? You may decorate with treasures made by children. You may have flowers set in pots or growing in a garden. You may decorate with extravagance. You may go small, even minimalist. Whatever your approach is this year, I wish you a holiday season full of love.
