As I drove home from Thanksgiving Day shopping, I spied a sign, poked into the almost frozen ground. A smallish, red and green sign, like the kind that proclaims a garage sale:
First Annual Christmas Tree Lighting
at the Village Hall
6:30 PM, Saturday
What tree? I wondered to myself.
Duckie told me she saw village officials testing the lights.
Yup. Now that I look a little closer, I DO see a baby Christmas Tree.
I rallied the troupes.
“Won’t it be fun to take a picture every year in front of the tree? We can see how the tree grows, and how we change, too. Everyone agreed.
Santa Came and lit the tree.
Some of the troupes made it. Maybe next year we’ll have a full battalion.
