Christmas palm tree

Because I was chortling at Sixpence None the Richer’s Christmas Island song.

How’d you like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island?
How’d you like to spend Christmas away across the sea?
How’d you like to spend Christmas on Christmas Island?
How’d you like you hang a stocking on a great big coconut tree?

  1. As a Floridian, this cracks me up. Partly because people DO decorate palm trees around her, and partly because other than decoration palm trees are pretty much the most useless plant around. They’re not actually trees, either–they are technically in the grass family.

    Oh, and my daughter (age 9) just peeked over my shoulder and told me the “half-phoenix, half cheetah is cool.”

  2. Well, palms don’t die in extreme heat! I live in southern CA, and we have palm trees everywhere, too. We get snow on the mountains near here, so we can at least see it in the distance. And tell your daughter thanks for the compliment on the cheetah-griffin. He’s fast enough to kill you on foot or on the wing. 🙂

  3. Nice cheerful cozy tropical chrismas scene. Uhm… Would a palm tree die if there was snow? I’ve only ever seen or heard of them in hot climates. Think people associate them with avoiding cold weather. Which is not at all a bad thing. I know someone, last year she had a ‘let it snow’ sign – and it did. So much that she threw the sign away. Winter tends to get to people.
