Jake’s Christmas Tree Challenge

“The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.”

It was so great to see Jake’s new challenge sitting in my inbox today, and I really love his wonderful Christmas animations. It seems that everywhere we go at this time of year, there are Christmas trees, lights and decorations. Here are a few that I saw as I did some frantic last minute shopping before our drive up to New Jersey to spend Christmas with our son and family.

We will be driving up, staying overnight in Savanna and Washington. I know I’d better pack some warm clothes. Last year it was pretty cold up there, but the snow made his house look really pretty. You can see the glow from the Christmas tree through the right hand side window.

Inside it was lovely and warm and the star on the 15 ft tree, just touched the ceiling.

I’m so looking forward to going into the city to see the ginormous tree at the Rockefeller Centre. It’s always quite spectacular even in the daytime. I’d love to see it at night though. The tree, usually a Norway Spruce and about 100 ft tall, is a wonderful New York tradition, and has been put up every year since 1933.

I may not manage to get to all your blogs tomorrow, as I have lots of presents to wrap and packing to do. I will however, try to catch up with you during the 1200 mile journey, as I won’t be doing the driving. πŸ™‚
