Two tiny trees that Belong;
Once a Christmas tradition has lived ... really lived ... it can’t die. Some are universal; some trickle down to us from our families; new ones evolve out of life situations ... and a few we keep hidden away in our hearts.
We send holiday greeting cards and attend religious services; guide children’s hands to complete Dear Santa letters; remind them to leave cookies and milk for Santa on Christmas Eve, and then settle down with them to watch radar track Rudolph and his sleigh on TV.
Traditions like those belong to us all. But others — like Christmas Eve oyster suppers and midnight fireworks — belong to families alone. They’re as varied as the people who keep them, but one thing is certain. They might seem to spring up on their own but they don’t mature without two or more keepers.
