With Boughs Of Holly

The Chateau Laurier hotel has a tradition each year. Christmas trees are decorated, sponsored by local companies and organizations, and the public can vote on which one they like the most. This is done as a charitable venture, benefitting the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario's foundation. This year music seemed to be a prevailing theme among a number of them, spread around the Chateau lobby and the nearby corridors. I'll show you more of them over the next two days.

    Belated Merry Christmas to you!
    … and of course ... "Die hard" is a great film for Christmas! Tonight on one of our TV channels, the first film of the series will be shown!

  3. I like the idea that it's charity that benefits a Children's Hospital.
    But all the glitter and glamour is a little too much for me in the early morning. ... ;-)
