Each of our three trees this Christmas has a distinct personality. From the biggest tree in the keeping room/dining room, filled with heirloom ornaments and special little mementos over the years from family and friends, to the smaller parlor tree adorned ever so lightly with sweet little glass, gold, and silver ornaments that for the most part have a connection to the sea, and past vacations to the Cape. The smallest tree keeps our holiday spirits high in our hub (the kitchen) and is anchored into a large antique crock. It’s short and stout form is full of country and kitchen touches, that includes an assortment of edibles from cookies to delicate little lady’s and crab apples. Just makes you smile.

Merry Christmas dear friends! From all of us at Connecticut Country House, we wish you and yours a beautiful and blessed Christmas.

Love, Nora

 

O Christmas Tree (Nineteenth-century German carol)

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy leaves are so unchanging

Not only green when summer’s here,
But also when it’s cold and drear.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Thy leaves are so unchanging!

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Such pleasure do you bring me!
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Such pleasure do you bring me!

For every year this Christmas tree,
Brings to us such joy and glee.
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
Such pleasure do you bring me!

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
You’ll ever be unchanging!
A symbol of goodwill and love
You’ll ever be unchanging

Each shining light
Each silver bell
No one alive spreads cheer so well

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,
You’ll ever be unchanging
