Ah, in case you hadn’t noticed it’s getting pretty close to Christmas and if you haven’t gotten your Christmas Tree yet you’d better start looking. It’s a good thing today is Look For An Evergreen Day! A lot of the world now uses fake trees, allergies and all that, but there is still nothing like the real thing. I, unfortunately, am one of those allergic to the tree. I love to look at them and admire them, but I can’t be around them. So I’ll look, but won’t take. I like to think of it as saving a tree. I do miss having the real thing though.
How to celebrate – Get your Evergreen Tree for the holidays! Read my short story “Why the Evergreen’s Stay Green” (Available on Amazon e-books) Enjoy the holidays.
There are actually a lot of trees used for Christmas but the Evergreen is probably the most cherished and best recognized. The tree is not only beautiful but lives for a good length of time, even after being cut down. Over the years, many families have gone out to the woods and looked for their own Evergreen tree to celebrate Christmas with. It is frowned upon today and during the season they appear on nearly every street corner so the need isn’t really necessary. (Not sure it ever really was) And so, for a self-serving pitch, I offer my short story; “Why The Evergreen’s Stay Green” as a story about the original “Christmas Tree”. It’s available on Amazon and it’s cheap. And I think a really good little story.
How to celebrate – Find your Christmas tree on your own this year. (Don’t get caught cutting it down though) Find out why the Evergreen was selected as the Christmas Tree. Read, “Why the Evergreen’s Stay Green.”
