The festive olive tree

Everyone runs out and buys a pine tree to celebrate Christmas. The reason? Maybe it's tradition, maybe it's because they smell so good. It doesn't hurt that they match the holiday fun that is meant to be winter wonderland. I personally love them.

But what of other trees? An olive branch is a symbol of peace. That alone should give it some cache during the season ear-marked for peace, love, and happiness. Then there is the rich deep green fruit that looks just like a perfect little ornament. An ornament created by nature. In all their splendor, a noble olive tree is rooted deep in the soil.
Enjoy the pines at home and let the olive trees lay in the grove. Keep tradition alive. I'm getting my pine on Saturday. Happy yule y'all!
