Walking past these trees on the street today, I couldn’t help but have a twinge of sadness. I’m not big into the whole commercialism of the holiday season, but I do love a Christmas tree and the festive decorations it brings. Now is the time that we will start seeing more discarded, yesterdays news, used and abused. poor, sad Christmas trees lining streets to be thrown out with the trash. A reminder that it is all over with for another year.
