The Super Tree|

Years ago my mother, grandmother, and I took a trip to Bronner’s, the largest Christmas store in the world. You want a glass manatee for your tree?  You can find it there.  Problem was, when we got home we all realized we had too many ornaments. (despite passing on the manatee) But grandma had an idea.  She bought me a second tree.

I had a few comic related ornaments to go with my more traditional decorations.  So when she gave me a four foot tree for my “overflow” the suggestion was made to go with it.  The first year it needed a lot of padding, but a few glass bulbs and extra candy canes and it looked pretty good.

So every year the super tree goes up, often with at least one new ornament and it always reminds me of my grandma. Maybe its a bit silly but its fun, and sometimes that and the memories are what matter most.
