::: The Paradise Tree :::

Last night saw a tree shining with tiny lights warming our living room with its special glow.... hopefully similar to the beauty of the stars which inspired Martin Luther to hang lights from an evergreen on a wintry Christmas Eve in 1500.

Our tree sparkled as little fingers hung small treasures and decorations on it's branches..... and little people sang and squealed with laughter letting the excitement thumping in their chests take them away with the magic they were creating in our home.... do you remember that feeling?

And it was so magical even the moon was smiling at us.......did you see it?

What a bewitching sight for this 1st of December evening......

Oh, you describe this magical evening so beautifully! And your tree looks most pretty. Seeing these photos and the sparkle of the lights makes me long to get our tree and bring out the decorations.
