I had a moment like that, this year. It was Christmas Eve and I was out for some last minute supplies . . . and there it was: the best Christmas tree ever.
Let’s take a side moment now before you say ‘but I’m Jewish!’ or ‘I don’t have a tree, I celebrate Kwanzaa’. Let’s be honest, none of that really matters.

The tree doesn’t say ‘birth of our savior’ it says ‘pagan fertility ritual’.
The glass balls are representative of eggs – a universal symbol of making babies. It’s a pine tree, because they are alive in the middle of the snowy season.
