Solstice tree, Yule log

Solstice treeNorthern Christmas celebrations include trees in various different ways, and I’ve recently riffed on two of them in photo essays at my blog: “O Solstice Tree” and “Yule Log.”

Obviously these are far from the last words on the subject, so don’t be shy about submitting your own holiday tree posts. (What about the holly and the ivy, for example? Which trees are best for wreaths? And what’s the deal with mistletoe? Is there something about its parasitic nature which makes it an ideal icon for lovers?)

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several small, odd books, including Breakdown: Banjo Poems, Words on the Street: An Inaction Comic, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my literary blog Via Negativa. I'm the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a webzine showcasing videopoetry and poetry film. And I've been a dedicated if somewhat unorthodox homebrewer for more than 20 years.
