We had a very renovations and virus-filled Christmas, with nary a Christmas tree to be seen. On the plus side, our house was a welcome island of serenity in a world overwhelmed with Christmas-related exuberance. On the minus, nostrils clogged with sawdust are not terribly festive.
The Christmas train came to visit though, and so we went to see the track-side excitement.
And some of the usual trailside decorations popped up as well.
