I offer you today a view of my humble Christmas branch.

It's a tradition that I share with my husband. We're both allergic to pine trees and our place is too small for a large artificial tree.

So a few years ago we started looking for the ideal Christmas branch.

It started when we spent Christmas 2011 in New York in a tiny apartment. We found a branch that fell in Morningside Park after Hurricane Irene.

Last year, we were in Mexico for Christmas and we decorated a palm branch.

This year's branch came from an empty lot off Wood Street in Pilsen.

Oh christmas tree, oh christmas tree, of all the trees most lovely.
