A Blue and Purple Christmas

I wanted to share one more Christmas tree with you from the Owego, NY Christmas Tree auction that ended December 17.

This blog post is dedicated to two people I know who were diagnosed with cancer this past November, just before the holidays.  A reminder, in this season of joy, that bad things can happen and those people need the support of their loved ones more than ever.  Sometimes it is so easy to get caught up in the busyness and forget the people who need you the most.

The American Cancer Society says that it fights for less cancer and "more birthdays".  So in honor of that, someone created this tree for the Owego Christmas Tree auction I've blogged about several times recently.

 "Blue Christmas" isn't just a song made famous by Elvis.  It is something real, because Christmas can be a very sad time for a lot of people. To those people in my life (including another friend, and reader of my blog, whose husband passed away from cancer earlier this year), I send good thoughts your way today.

Tomorrow, a different take on Christmas.
