Today, a little treat brought to you from a Coolest Small Town in America.
Every November, the small upstate New York village of Owego hosts a Holiday Showcase. The jewel of the celebration, at the Tioga County Historical Society, is a fundraiser called O Tannenbaum.
You can bid on the trees (or the decorations), done in all different themes. In 2011, after a major flood, this celebration was used to help Owego recover.
The bidding for 2013 is over, but these are some of the decorated trees. This year's theme was A Victorian Christmas.
There was even one tree partially decorated in Civil War commemorative stamps. Guess what's going to be in a future Civil War Sunday post.
Do you decorate some kind of holiday tree? What is your favorite type of tree decoration?
