Tree I
Totem Pole Playhouse

Gnome for the Holidays
Everyone loves to be “Home” for the Holidays, but why not Gnome instead? These cute creatures are known as symbols of good luck. Originally, gnomes were thought to provide protection, especially of buried treasure and minerals in the ground. They are still used today to watch over crops and livestock, often tucked into the rafters of a barn or placed in the garden.
Gnomes even have their own holiday; International Gnome Day was instituted in 2002 and is celebrated on June 21st by over a dozen countries.
The history of garden gnomes is unique, long, interesting, and even comical. They may always be popular and will likely survive and live in peoples’ gardens and Christmas Trees for centuries to come.
The Totem Pole Playhouse is “Gnome/Home” to many during the summer and we are happy to have decorated this magical tree for this festival.

A gold star is placed over the manger scene which guides us to the Christ child. On the right side, there are a couple of snowflakes falling on a white church bird house decorated with gold bells and red berries. A red bird is close by nestled among berries and a snow dusted pinecone. Along the left side of the wreath, carolers are standing in song with strips of music sheets which is outlined with holly and glimmering red berries. The final touch is a large glittering bow.
