As the country scrambles with the reality of the mass murder at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT I can't help but think about Christmas and how the families of these precious souls will handle the pain. So it is with a heavy heart that I gather these pictures of Christmas trees from around the world, in all their glory, sending light and love to those personally affected by this unthinkable murder and sacrifice of human life.
