The Christmas Tree

Posted on December 27, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized |

In 2007 when I moved back to the states, I showed up on my mom’s doorstep with a suitcase and two dogs and not much more to my name. Christmas was only a few months away, and I had nothing to give.  So I wrote a Christmas story about my brother and sister and me, a true story of the Christmas I was compelled (coerced might be a better word) to give up my pacifier.  I printed it on fancy paper, and gave it to my family for Christmas.

A couple of years later, I wrote a different Christmas story and gave it as a gift again.  This time, not because I couldn’t afford gifts, but because it was so much fun the first time around.  That story, “The Christmas Tree,” includes my brother and sister-in-law, my sister, my mother, and my three nieces.

I hadn’t read it since that Christmas in 2009 until earlier this week, when it came into my head unexpectedly.  I thought I would include it here, a Christmas gift to you.

The Christmas Tree

It’s a story about a quest to find the perfect tree.  The events unfolded within may or may not be true.

Merry Christmas.
