The Christmas Tree

“Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all thirty feet tall.” Larry Wilde

This is Christmas 1960 at my grandparents home in Catford, South London and my sister Lindsay and I are clearly in awe of this magnificent lifelike specimen.

  4. That’s a good quote. Perhaps that particular tree might have been better on top of a table!

  10. How right you are Andrew. I have never met a Christmas Tree I didn’t like. Ours have grown smaller since we normally spend Xmas alternating between kids. But we still have a tree. We have now gone to buying live ones that we are planting on our property! –Curt
