Balsam, tinsel and all that...

In a previous post I mentioned that this period from late November to early January can be a most irritating time of year. Fortunately another more pleasing aspect exists, as I experienced this weekend. Just give me a lighted Christmas tree and I am a happy boy. If they ever need to lock me away at the funny farm (now there's a truly non-PC statement), the lights (twinkling optional), the balsamic scent and an occasional carol and I will be a model patient.

Apparently this dates back to 1959 when I spent the Yule cranky with roseola. My parents kept me relatively happy and calm by firelight and tree light.
