When I came over my mother's house we saw her tree for the first time. Daisy was quick to notice there wasn't a star and I don't recall seeing any lights on it either. My mother always depended on me to put the tree together, but I can see she was able to figure it out on her own. There was a few years where we had no tree. I thought it ruined Christmas a little to be honest. She said having so many grandchildren now made her want to be more festive.
