Publisher Notes: November/December 2020

The holidays have arrived! As many of you know by now, I adore this time of the year. It’s filled with family traditions – old and new.

In our household picking out our Christmas tree is my most favorite tradition. Like many families, we start at one lot and visit 10 others before returning to the first lot to select the tree.

Every year I’m asked the same question – what’s wrong with this one? The answer is quite simple…it’s NOT THE ONE!

Now, don’t ask me to explain what qualifies as the perfect tree, because quite honestly I don’t know. I just know it when I see it.

It’s a tradition that began when I was a child. I learned from the best how to pick out the perfect Christmas tree, my mother.

So in a few short weeks, we will embark on our annual pilgrimmage to find our tree. I’m sure  more than a few cross words will be exchanged before it is all said and done.

After all, it’s Christmas y’all!
