The best thing about Christmases and holidays are the special memories that we collect. One of my Christmas memories is of the aluminum tree that my Aunt Sidy bought. Some thought that the tree was cheesy, but I thought it was wonderful. The tree came with a color wheel,
and each color made the branches sparkle with brilliant lights. That tree may have begun my obsession with all things colorful and sparkly. You rocked, Sidy!
