It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas!

Happy Birthday Family Christmas Tree—40 years old this Christmas


I am part of a great growing family

I'm marvelously memorable you see;

I'm the centerpiece of every December–

Folks come from far and near to see me.

I was brought home when the baby was born

They gave me the top spot in the room–

They made me feel both loved and needed

—And cheerily cherished too.

Through many years they have love me

Treasuring my green snow-flocked arms;

Although I may not grow fragrant fresh fir

–Their cozy Christmas lights keep me warm.

Their children gave me hand-made crafts

I've watched them grow taller each year;

Yes, I'm the faithful Family Christmas Tree

—But true love brings me back each year!

P.S. Our 6 foot snow flocked artificial Christmas tree was purchased when our son Richard was born (and he's just turned 40 years old)

Happy Birthday Family Christmas Tree!
