I grew up in the province. My parents worked in a farm and we lived a hand to mouth existence. Although we're not rich, my father and mother always made sure that we had enough food in our table but those unnecessary decorations seemed to be out or were not included in the budget. Every Christmas, I always wish we have a Christmas Tree. I thought that only the rich could afford it. In my younger age, I got envy with my classmates with Christmas decoration inside their house. One time, my sisters and I decided to build our own tree using branches of wood. To make the story short, we ended up happy with our tree although it wasn't as glamorous as the one bought in the market. We we're even delighted to discover how we actually made it out of scraps. Today, Christmas tree reminds me of something. Christmas day will always be special with or without Christmas Tree.
