Time goes by so fast!
This amazing tree should be a symbol of everything warm and cheerful. Like hot coco, ham and keso de bola.
It's easier for kids to realize that but when you get older, it gets a lot harder.
It becomes an entirely different thing - a reminder of some sort. A refuge to some and to others a pain.
So the old clocks on this tree (however unintentional) is a perfect symbolism of a grown-up Christmas.
The magic is still there - but you just have to see beyond all the clocks to find it.
