Thank you everyone for voting in the Great Tree Date Debate. The results show that there is very little consensus! So now I feel better about not waiting until Christmas Eve – there doesn’t seem to be an official Anglican position on this. And reminds me that we ought to go out and get our tree, seeing as the Engineer’s birthday has now passed. We’ll be heading out sometime this week. Or I’ll be sending the Vicar out with the roofrack, anyway.
In the meantime we’re still wondering what to do with the white fibreoptic tree that someone left on our doorstep this weekend. It’s used, with some tinsel and baubels. And we’ve not yet tracked down the donor. Another Vicarage mystery.
