The Book Elves love Christmas, but they get very, very competitive when
shopping for a Christmas tree. After being banned by the local tree farm
after a rather ugly incident involving the mayor’s mother and a chainsaw
last year, they decided to cut their own in our back woods.

Now here’s the thing about “home-grown” trees- they tend to be “home” in
more ways than one. The first inkling we had that they might have brought
more into the house than just a balsam fir came when a sleepy chipmunk
landed on the mantle, and soon there were a variety of songbirds flying
around the living room. It was actually very cute and Christmassy and lent
a festive air to our Christmas party last Thursday evening -the bright
colors and cheerful songs of the chickadees, jays, cardinals and titmice
were quite charming.

And then the squirrel and the red-tailed hawk popped out...

But before they turned our living room from a scene from Dickens’ ‘A
Christmas Carol’ to a scene from a Bruce Willis “Die Hard” movie, the Book
Elves finished our latest catalog-
