I have had Christmas tree envy in a BIG WAY this year. My favorite Christmas tree of all time, has always been at my parent’s house. It’s a like a pine-scented scrapbook, or a scratchy hug. There are ornaments that mark just about every birthday my sister and I have had, heirloom trinkets, family jokes, and lots of handmade ornaments made by many talented aunts, cousins, and of course, my awesome mom.
But one of the things that makes this tree so unique and special for me, are the strings of Scandinavian flags. The Scandinavian flag garland not only looks nice, but it makes me feel tied to all of my relatives, past and present.
