My Christmas Tree: Sentences & Moral Epigrams.

Those who apply themselves too closely to little things, such as purchasing Christmas candles, a Christmas wreath, and butter for all the Christmas baking-to-come, often become incapable of great things, such as buying an actual Christmas tree.

We have not enough strength to follow all our inclinations to buy a Christmas tree.

If we had a Christmas tree we should not complain of the Christmas fervor of others, including their Christmas trees.

If we had no faults, such as the procrastination of buying a Christmas tree, we should not take so much pleasure in noting the faults of others, such as, I don't know, what Christmas-related folly have you committed?

(via La Rochefoucauld)

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy leaves are green forever.
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy beauty leaves thee never.
Thy leaves are green in summer's prime,
Thy leaves are green at Christmas time.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy leaves are green forever.
Love you!
remember you love me..

I have not purchased any candles and I'm not done with my shopping. And I need to make more cookies. But I don't fault you for not buying stuff, like trees and wreaths. Maybe you should stay inside and drink tea...

Tree. GET IT. You'll be glad you did. I have not yet bought my husband a thing. Anything.

Okay. Now that you've listened to the Natalie Merchant song I am with your girls on this one. Get your tree. Tree. Tree. Tree. Tree. Tree.
