Well, it was tons of work getting everything ready. The lighted Peace symbol/wreath has been hung on the eaves (13th or 14th year); the Nativity en masse is set up (attending: the usual suspects, as well as robots, travelling salesmen, Homer Simpson and more) and the 9' Blue Spruce with our Xmas ornament collection and lots of lights. Obviously, Christmas here is a big production. But it's all worth it. Just to sit and look at the tree is one of the most visually pleasing and peaceful things to do. It does for my eyes and brain what a massage does. Total relaxation, and all is right with the world.
