A apr Ever have a year when it just did no to seem like Christmas that s the Way it was for our family this Christmas season at first. Work and the routine of living had crowded in gift buying and card mailing were behind schedule besides. Christmas requires children and one fledgling had married during the year and the other was testing his wings in High school so we had that Bali Humbug feeling about Christmas we heard the constant blare of loudspeakers with carols everywhere and they spread More irritation than Joy they seemed to stand for form and not substance anti Christmas and not Christmas and we grew More disenchanted with the Holiday. Still there were rituals that needed performing. One was the Purchase of a Christmas tree. There Are Only two kinds of Trees the ones that turn Brown and drop All their Needles within two Days after you buy them and the ones that inexplicably stay Green for weeks. And you spend hours prudently selecting one from a supermarket a Fly by night stand or a boy scout. But As i prepared for the search a Friendly neighbor named Bill Terry invited me to go along with him. A Friend had said we could Cut a tree from his Woods near Stone Mountain he is still Young enough to outrun Stokes Micenheimer in a Hundred Yard dash. Personally.

Those stories about people cutting a tree for themselves out in the Woods had always seemed to be merely old wives tales or a half forgotten custom. A cold wind was blowing when Terry and i arrived in the Woods with his two sons Tim and Mark. We saw passably Good Trees immediately and wanted to Cut. But Tim disappeared. We heard him in the distance Quot come Over this Way a he cried into the wind. Quot i be found a perfect one a by the time we arrived he had moved on ahead shouting that he had found an even prettier tree. Then we followed Mark who also had found a better tree. And As we walked the voices of those Happy and searching children seemed to by symbols of the spirit of Christmas hopefully beckoning us through the cold v kinds of doubt and indifference. We found our perfect Trees two shapely Cedars. Next Day my family began to decorate the tree. It was then that we realized what a truly remarkable tree we had for we had not been the first to adopt the tree and take it into the family. Deep inside the branches and clinging close to the trunk was a Small and deserted Birds nest unharmed by time and storms. Perhaps it was the association with birth or the association with flown fledglings but somehow that tiny nest seemed appropriate and significant we left it untouched. And the feeling of Christmas crept into our Home at last. A and that s an order of a Napkin in the neck can help to keep a Man from making a polka Dot tie out of a Plain one.
