The Merry Season!

It's that most celebratory time of year. What could be more fun than designing a Christmas tree - especially if you're an artist?

Here are some examples of creativity in Holiday Trees:

Every year the Tate Museum features an artist's Christmas Tree sculpture. This one is by Shirazeh Houshiary:

Patrick Roger created the tallest tree at 32 feet using 4 TONS OF CHOCOLATE!

To design a tree from recycled material, Kyle Martin created a wonderful functional tree out of recycled polyester strapping.

The desert of Sedona, Arizona, provided the local flora in the form of a cactus.

Jolanta Midtien used 32,000 Sprite Bottles to create her masterpiece.

What would life be without a Pac-Man tree in Madrid, Spain?

Thinking of all the purchases at this time of year became an ode to the shopping cart for Anthony Schmitt.

What this little humble tree lacks in glitz is more than compensated by the painstaking work of Dalton Ghetti.
Lastly, there is my wish for you, dear and loyal reader. May you know all the joy, smiles, warmth and laughter of a Merry Holiday - however you celebrate it. R. Atencio
