Welcome to the
Winter Solstice. ~Vic
The evergreen Fir Tree has traditionally been used to celebrate winter festivals (Pagan and Christian) for thousands of years. Pagans used branches of it to decorate their homes during the winter solstice, as it made them think of the spring to come. The Romans used Fir Trees to decorate their temples at the festival of
Saturnalia. Christians use it as a sign of everlasting life with God.

I love all the trees. Christmas is my most favorite time of the year. I love everything about it, the color, the lights, the trees and all the people who fill my life!
Love you, Dear!

This is a lit up town with a lot of decorations.

We have a lit up town but that is it. There is no real money in our town…that would be Franklin and Brentwood

There is a lot of money here but, it’s badly mismanaged. The county is very strict on businesses, not allowing much industry (therefore not much biz generated wealth) and they tax the homeowners to death. The sales tax is high. Highest taxed county in the entire state… The county owns more property than the homeowners. Duke University owns some of it. UNC owns some of it.

The county owns more than homeowners? wow…. yea there are a lot of rules here….we have really high property taxes….but nothing like there. It does sound like Frankin’s sister city lol

High property taxes…is TN, by chance, without an income tax or, possibly a personal property tax?

It is without an income tax yes
