O Tannenbaum

In fall 2009, I received a olive tree sapling at an ecology rally, and at Christmastime, it had grown a little but couldn't support much Christmas decoration beyond a little tinsel.

Last year it could take more tinsel.

This year it's a proper tree.

Happy holidays, be yours Hanukkah, Solstice, Yule, Festivus, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day — or Holy Innocents Day on December 28, which in Spain is like April Fool's Day, so beware.
