Find a lonely tree that needs some love.
When I saw two very merry women giggling in their sneakers, throwing tinsel onto this tree—all rosy cheeks and grey hair (god bless femmes d’un certain age)—I just had to stop, didn’t I. They looked a little tense as I walked over, then one says Oh, man, for a minute there we thought you were the cops. I considered pointing out that I drive a toast coloured Toyota, but they’re already back to laughing and when I ask why they’re decorating the tree, they say for fun.
Makes sense to me.
Although popcorn or cranberry garlands are preferable to tinsel. Better for wildlife.
And don’t forget to clean up after the hols!
