Season's Snippings

My least favorite part of decorating the tree is always those tangled lights! When my daughter was 10, I spent hours trying to get the lights just right on our Christmas tree. As midnight approached, I got more and more tired and frustrated. Finally, I stepped back and admired the beauty of my evenly-spaced, perfectly-placed Christmas lights. Noticing a long branch sticking out on one side, I reached in with a pair of clippers and carefully clipped the branch—and the wire for the lights!
