This is my Christmas tree! A family donated it to school. After it was used for our staff Christmas party on Dec. 4, I volunteered to give it a new home. The organizing committee decided that I would be a great host for this fine tree and sent it home with me that very night. I joked that I was the first person in all of Austria to have their Christmas tree set up. Here, it's tradition to set up your tree on Christmas Eve and attach candles to the branches. Then in the evening, families light the candles and have their Christmas celebration.
