twelve dates of christmas / on our sixth date of christmas...

...we visited the angel tree at the metropolitan museum of art. 

year in and year out, of all the many and varied christmas trees perched around the city, this is the one that brings me to tears. angels floating down spruce branches, townspeople going about quotidian jobs, silk-robed magi approaching the holy family in wonder — i stand at the base and my breath catches and i am stirred. it's all so mystical to me.
