I remember one Christmas where we had a special tree. I was away at college in a dorm. We all were very close friends.

We all decided to decorate a Christmas tree. We put it in our foyer for all to see. It seemed to be a different tree. Everyone helped trim it  from things they had in their apartment. We didn’t have a tree skirt so someone put  a pair of pants around the bottom instead. There was even decorated emptied pop cans hangings as ornaments as well as tied up spoons hanging from the branches.

Everyone came together making their own ornaments for the tree. To look at it was a scary site, but for all of us who lived in the dorm it reminded us of the love we had for each other.
