Christmas in Liberia (a little late)

I totally meant to post this on Christmas, but completely forgot! So, how much did you complain toting your Christmas tree back to your house on the hood of your car? We saw a couple of guys like this througout Liberia. Some even had them all the way on top of their heads! Christmas isn't quite the same since the war, but some people still try to get trees if they have the money to afford them.

The power of the human spirit is nothing short of inspiring. This definitely puts how we celebrate into a very different and meaningful perspective.

I've posted my Wordless Wednesday entry here and hope you'll drop by for a visit:

Hope you have a wonderful WW!

All the best,

Makes me feel silly for complaining for our trunk being small, causing us to WORK to get the tree in this year!
Once again, you put it all in perspective!

Love your new layout. I saw your comment on HollyAnn's blog (I know,it's amazing that I found it since you rarely comment on anything)and was going to tell you to check out my daughter's blog
lifeofsayjay.blogspot.com because she used on of them too. Aren't they awesome? I'm waiting for her to get a cool summery beachy someting to go with my new digs in Florida.
