We pulled this photo from a Facebook post that Raymond saw recently, laughing about how perfect an idea it was for us. Then today Raymond told me he thinks he’ll actually try to make a Christmas tree of books at the Manse! It would of course be our secondary “tree”; as you may have read in my post yesterday, we have bought a lovely (and very real) balsam fir that we will be putting up and decorating next weekend. But interestingly, in order to put it in the place where the Christmas tree was generally installed during my childhood at the Manse, we will have to move out a whole bunch of boxes of books. And what better thing to do with those books (at least for the time being) than stack them up in a Christmas-tree shape, adorn the whole with lights, and put it in another window?
I think it is an excellent plan. Especially if Raymond does all the work.
