Thursday's Tale: "It's coming on Christmas. They're cutting down trees..."
"It's coming on Christmas They're cutting down trees...," is a lyric lines from the popular song River, written by Joni Mitchell. I thought of her song this past Saturday, when the Rockefeller Christmas tree arrived in NYC. The You Tube video posted above features a slice of the event and I have posted more information on Facebook.
It seems a shame to sacrifice such a health tree for this purpose. One small consolation: once the entire 2017-2018 Christmas holiday season has passed, and the tree is taken down, Habitat for Humanity will build houses from lumber derived from this Christmas tree.
