one little Christmas tree

When I was a little boy around this time of year, the Christmas tree would ignite my little imagination with hope and anticipation of what Christmas morning might bring. The air was filled with smells of my mom’s cooking and the sounds of Motown Christmas songs. One song, in particular, was my favorite. I begged my mom to play it over and over again. It was “One Little Christmas Tree” by Stevie Wonder. I felt akin to that little tree – tiny and small.
