Today, when I returned to my car in a parking lot, I found it next to a car that seemed to be completely filled with the live pine tree stuffed inside. The smell of pine inside that car must have been intoxicating. The image reminded me of this one–of a larger tree in a smaller car (from Curiosities by Dickens).
The snow has all but melted here, but more is forecast for tonight and I'm hoping for a White Christmas. As the song says, May your days be merry and bright and may all your Christmases be white.
