Light the Tree

My grandmother had a mini fake tree that she kept in her basement, adorned with ornaments all year round. It made decorating really easy as she would just bring it upstairs. Once I came upon it in June and as a small child I wondered why it didn’t look as special as it did during the holidays. I worried that the next year it would have lost some of its magic.

But I remember once it was upstairs, plugged in and surrounded by family it was transformed. And with it, my idea of what was actually important about the holidays.
