It's our first Christmas in Missouri,
continuing our tradition of a fresh 
Christmas tree,
for which I drove over an hour,
into uncharted territory, 
on winding, snowy roads,
and when the guy said, 
"Here's the saw so you can cut it
down yourself," I thought 
I was stuck in a movie,
feeling ever so much 
like Clark Griswold,
feeling the happy frozen moment of
Hallelujah at the sight of this tree.
