Carmine's Christmas tree is up!
This weekend, four gallant Carmenites dragged it, pushed it, hauled it, begged it, swore at it and scolded it up the hill. They then dressed it in multicoloured Christmas finery, all in the freezing cold and the pouring rain. Now the cheerful lights greet us in the morning gloom and the evening fog, making the children's eyes light up with Christmas colours, and warming Mama's heart.
All those of you who pass Carmine every day on the lake road, or who leave their houses shivering across the lake in Macagno, spare us a swift upward glance and you will see Carmine's Christmas greeting to all!
