O Tannenbaum!

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure dost thou bring me!
For ev’ry year the Christmas tree,
Brings to us all both joy and glee.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Much pleasure dost thou bring me!


The family Christmas tree captures the enchantment of Christmas and familial love. It is the centrepriece around which we all gather. In the darkness of the living room with only the multi-coloured tree lights for illumination, I can endlessly gaze at all the decorations and be filled with contentment. So there is some excitement when the signs first appear in parking lots around town. The trees are coming!
