Thus said, our children have had a full immersion into American Christmas trees. We visited the Ronald Reagan Museum where they had a different Christmas tree to represent each 10 year segment of American history. On Thursday we were in a town where businesses, churches, individuals, etc. put up decorated trees in the town park, making a beautiful site at night. Everywhere we look, houses, streets, and businesses are decorated with lights, blowups, trees, and greetings. We have had the privilege of going to a church's Christmas concert and a Christmas party. And despite all of the talk about America not being able to freely express their holiday wishes, it warms our hearts to still hear people in the stores, restaurants, and banks say,
"And have a merry Christmas!"
