Stripped of its leaves and dead for winter but adorned with lights, a tree celebrates life. As the day wanes in the background of the jigsaw puzzle, the tree knows that the shortest day of the year approaches and prepares to celebrate the many winter light festivals. The tree is not concerned if the festival is called Christmas or Yule or Hanukkah, the tree only wants to sing a winter paean to light and life. It gives one pause, has the tree manifested these lights on its own to mitigate the pain it felt as its leaves deserted it, or did a kind passing soul decorate the tree to allow it have the privilege usually granted only to the evergreens of symbolizing life in the dead of winter.
