One family’s Christmas tree tradition

Growing up, I looked forward to the annual baking of gingerbread men and jam thumbprints and the daily indulgence of the chocolates from an advent calendar. I delighted in the old school, watching “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “Miracle on 34th Street” and, of course, the classic version of “Rudolph.”
