I've heard that forces out there are trying to destroy it. For what?
I love the culture of it -- the music, the lights, the good cheer, Christmas tree memories ... And yes, the heart-warming reach of faith.
Around here on my daily walks up and down the streets of Oakland and Piedmont, some blocks at most have but one tree in a lone window.
Some are as drab as this:
And to the rest of you, MERRY CHRISTMAS!
