My mother, though, loves many of the trappings of Christmas, and one of her favorites is a Christmas tree. Since she's 93, it seemed a good idea to cater to her wishes and put up a tree. They do fill the house with a glorious scent, and even I have to admit that a lit Christmas tree is a joy to behold.
However, I don't think we enjoy our trees nearly as much as the goats enjoyed theirs--albeit in a very different fashion. I know they'll like ours just as much.
