People, Show Us Your Christmas Trees

When we lean out our 19th-story windows — yes, they really do open — we see the best Christmas tree in the world, the 50-foot fir in Bryant Park. And yes, we know, there are bigger trees in the city. Rockefeller Center always carts in some giant specimen for its annual tree lighting. Lincoln Center has its own ceremony. But the tree in Bryant Park is ours.

Good people of the BPP, show us the Christmas trees you call yours — small, lovely, benighted, in a quaint village green or a mall food court. Join our Flickr group and sling 'em on there. Can't wait to see them.

What about Hanukkah bushes? Are you accepting any of those?

@Will G., and everyone--Heck, yeah, send Hannukah bushes. If it's related to the winter holidays, then yes, absolutely.
