There's a large pine tree near my house. The neighborhood dresses it up during the holidays and it's one of our many sources of joy during that time. It's always featured in the city newspaper. I guess it's the way it just stands there with these large multicolored lights and shiny baubles. At night I like to imagine the whole street whispers a "thank you, good night" to it and it twinkles back in acknowledgment. Because I do. In fact I wish it's around like that all year. Maybe it's time I finally submit that proposal to the barangay hall.
