Loving a Good Tradition

Edinburgh's official Christmas Tree has been put up! This is one tradition that I love -- the country of Norway gives Edinburgh a massive Christmas tree each year as a symbol of solidarity and in gratitude for the help and friendship they received from Scotland during World War II.




The tree had quite some journey on this truck.




Set and ready to be decorated!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas .... anyone else in the holiday spirit???

Such a thoughtful gift! And yes, Wyatt and I have already been listening to Christmas music during the day. He loves it! We have to turn it off before Scott gets home because he thinks it is rushing it a bit!
