Beautiful Christmas Tree at Emory Midtown



The dip in Atlanta temperatures over the past week, has delayed residents putting up outdoor Christmas decorations as we wait for temperatures to rise.  I always look forward to see Christmas decorations as I drive throughout the metro area.  They are always such a delight and inspiration and we anticipate the spending time with family, friends and listening to Christmas music..the old and new songs throughout this glorious season.

As I passed through the main entrance of Emory Hospital Midtown, I was in awe of the beautiful “indoor” tree.  Hmmm.  I need a smaller version of this tree for my home.  Whether you have a beautiful Christmas tree or one that is more modest, do remember Christ is the reason for the season.
