This morning at the Jaffa Gate, they were distributing free Christmas trees to those individuals who would present some form of ID. One of my colleagues from the Armenian Patriarchate and I went down there just before 10am to get as many trees as our ID's would allow. We came back with 4, two of which are now gracing the entrance to the Patriarchal office.

It was great fun, putting up the decorations that have been used from year to year, to bring a little holiday cheer to our work environment. As we strung the garlands and hung the gold and red balls, bells, and bows, we hummed carols and smiled. Santa Claus is coming to town...Oh, Christmas Tree!...
