I'm Dreaming of a Warm Christmas

Well 2015 is definitely shaping up as a weird winter.  We're got record high temperatures up and down the East Coast for Christmas and no snow in sight.  Some folks are complaining about the lack of snow, but after last year a lot of people are enjoying the warmth.

The Charlie Brown Christmas Tree along the Recreation Path at Lane Street has grown up.  Click here to see what it used to look like.

And so to has the tradition of everyone hanging an ornament or two on the tree to celebrate Christmas.  This year the Land Trust suggested using natural ornaments due to left over tinsel and glass from last year.  This created some back and forth discussion over what types of decorations were appropriate, some of which the Land Trust folks tried to accommodate but didn't realize all the ramifications of.

Some people got really creative making some natural ornaments to hang on the tree.

But the bottom line is enjoy the Christmas season, show the kids how to enjoy stringing popcorn and cranberries, be responsible and clean up after yourselves, have a wonderful time with your families, and enjoy Shelton's beautiful open spaces,

I took Biscuit out for a walk today & I was HOT in a long sleeved shirt on December 25th!!!.  What the heck.  It's a fluky year - enjoy it while you can.

Here's this year's Christmas theme song .

Eventually we'll get whacked by Old Man Winter and then it will be time for snowshoeing, but until then crack out those light hikers, shorts and tee shirts and hit the trails. 

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Your Shelton Trails Committee Volunteers.
