Christmas trees are magical.
Big, towering ones, filled with lovely ornaments are amazing but small, simple trees can be just as lovely.
There's just something about the lights on a tree that makes adults like feel like children again.
Perhaps a lighted tree jogs our memories of childhood and the sweet innocence and simplicity of youth.
Sitting in a room with a brightly lighted tree can make our hearts sing.
This year, our big tree is in the living room, as always.
However, there is a very picturesque fiber optic tree in one bedroom window and an old-fashioned ceramic tree with colored lights on the dresser in another room.
Both of those trees are very pretty and cast a lovely glow in the rooms from dusk until bedtime.
I even added a simple little two-foot tree to a desk in my home office this year.
It's shown in this post.
It glowed brightly in multiple colors as I made out my Christmas cards and it contributed to holiday happiness.
