tree tradition

we were invited to join in on a wonderful tradition (thank you, friends!)
of offering our trees on the first day of the new year

with trees slower to burn than we thought
and a run back for lighter fluid

with the gift of food and the sharing of mittens,

we had a picnic in the snow
just as my mom tells of (and we had hot dogs just like they did!)

  1. We’ve thought about burning our tree but now I’m reconsidering. That’s a hefty fire there. And we have no snow so I’m afraid we could create a rather substantial brush fire. Looks lovely in the snow though! ;)


  2. Looks like fun! There are a couple great pictures there, too. I love the hot dog on the fork. It does seem there is a lot to do with fires… and then the fire in the village. yikes! ;)
