Our Christmas Tree on Christmas morning. The tree always warms up the house this time of year and we are sad when we take it down. The actual tree used for a Christmas tree is like any other pine tree. The magic comes when you decorate the tree with lights, ribbons and ornaments that have special meaning from friends, family, milestones and travel.
