Picking Out A Christmas Tree

Christmas trees are such a tease,
Choosing one’s a chore;
There’s Fraser fir, blue spruce, Scotch pine
And many, many more.

But by the time we take one home
All of us agree,
It’s not a pine or fancy spruce--
It’s now our Christmas tree!

from Christmas Is Coming! ©Charles Ghigna

So universal and so well stated!
