Around the Abbey

Merry Christmas!

Every year a few days before Christmas a few sisters go out to the woods to find the perfect Christmas tree for our refectory.  We have a tree farm and lots of woods so there are many to choose from.  This year we chose a Norway spruce.  It is a very wide tree.
The day before  Christmas Eve the tree is decorated.

 This year the tree was decorated with mostly items from nature.  The garland was gold ribbon and the tree top decoration was a whimsical angel.  It all looked very elegant.
