It is Christmas Eve morning. Our tree's lights are on and for the most part the city still sleeps. The lighting on this pre-lit tree challenges me. There are lengths of lights that will not remain lit (and no, they are not set to be flashing). I have taken to stringing the tree with extra lights, only to have those ones fail as well. With any project, there comes a time when you've done all you can and what is, is. The tree is what it is. Christmas Eve is still here and we will still celebrate the birth of Christ.
