It’s a Christmas tree…in February.

Christmas in February, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

Alright nobody loves Christmas more than I do…ok I don’t exactly celebrate Christmas but I appreciate its cultural significance. I just want to preface this with the fact that I am not a hater.

Ok, first of all it is a very blurry picture because it was freezing out when I took the picture. Oh yes, that’s right this Christmas tree is an outdoor Christmas tree. At any rate it was freezing outside and my hand was shaking a bit, also I have to tell you it is a bit uncomfortable photographing people’s houses in the middle of the night walking home from the metro.

Ok, enough of the backstory. I support the celebration of the holiday and I can even understand being so excited that you want to put a tree on your front lawn but what I’m having a bit of difficulty with is the fact that it is still there in February, for Christ’s sake. Uh, oh that may have been a poor choice of words, and for that I apologize. I think we have to live in the now. Christmas is over, it was great, we got lots of presents, many of us saw our families but I think it may be time to move on.
