I have wonderful memories of snowy, cold holidays caroling with my German class in our small Wisconsin town.
Neighbors sometimes visited to thank my family for decorating our Christmas tree in the front bay window of the Victorian we lived in because it had been so many years since they'd seen lights there.
Whatever your solstice tradition, I hope you enjoy watching my friends' tree preparation as much as I did. A surprise visitor joined in the festivities.
