A tree for all occasions

Posted Wednesday, November 19, 2008, at 9:44 AM

This tree was on the stage at Southside School during last week's Veterans Day program.
Check out this tree I spotted at Southside School in Shelbyville at last week's Veterans Day observance.

It's a decorated, lighted, if somewhat barren tree, which represents Christmas (even if Christmas can't be 'officially' celebrated in schools); flags represent veterans; and the orange ball on top at first reminded me of Halloween.

Even the tree's color resembles snow, which I predict we'll see more of this winter than in past years.

Someone sure knew how to include everything in this Tree For All Occasions.
