Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, how lovely is your artistic electric light spectacle.  Here we have a project well done with cubes stacked and assembled in the recognizable evergreen pyramid.  The lights change color from dazzling emerald to exciting fuchsia.  A futuristic take on the traditional Christmas tree in Brussels sure to make your spirits bright. However, this flashy display at the Grand Place has ruffled some local feathers. A response by the city councilor Philippe Close, “What we want is just to modernize the pleasure of winter, of this Christmas market and all the image of Brussels.  For people who want a traditional religious symbol, we have the nativity scene here in the square.  For people who want modernity, we have this new tree.”

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
