Christmas is a special time for me. I enjoy the festive atmosphere, sending Christmas cards, the tree and candles and associated decorations that adorn my home at Christmastime.
During Christmas of 1995 I was living in Greenville, SC. As is my custom, I deck the halls, as much as I can.
Many of the ornaments I accumulated during my bachelor days are still on our Christmas tree today.
The Christmas tree pictured was christened "Leonard," in honor of my friend Chuck.
It occurs to me, incidentally, that the same sad angel atop the tree in this photograph rests atop my Christmas tree this year. She still cannot stand up straight.
