O Christmas tree

T ree, the holidays and other things

I did decide to put up a tree – totally worth it; there’s just something nice about sitting around near the lights of a Christmas tree. When I heard about the thing Schoony was doing with the trees that cemented it for me, the price was right and it helped some people out- best reason to get a tree.

On the subject of trees… I can’t believe how many lights I’ve got on it. I must be up to about 1,000 by strings of 100 and it looks great, but I’m one who says never too many lights.

Staying with lights for a moment, I didn’t get as much coverage of Granville taking pictures or video of people’s lights. It was great to see and seems to convey a real holiday spirit – there also seemed to be more of them this year than in the past few. I didn’t get a peep on the website or via e-mail for nominations for great/great/awful displays. I got one single reply – on an index card. Nice to hear from that person, but I’d hoped to see more web traffic on that one, I want to keep that going for next year and start a little earlier, maybe go by parts of Granville? Like Raceville, South, North, etc.

Well here’s hoping everyone had a great Christmas holiday I know I’m already looking forward to taking my new clubs for a walk as soon as the snow clears. In the mean time I’m hoping this snow will stick around so I can get some miles on my snowshoes.
