One of my trees! Auckland City Mission 2010

Arrived before 7AM to decorate for a dinner that will feed 2000 people. Everyone will get candy and a gift too!

I helped with trees on the stage and felt like an old timer. I guess I've been helping with this since Christmas 2005!

Being part of this gives me perspective on what Christmas isn't; it isn't all about me and receiving.

There are more homes/families in our world who are not 2 parents with kids than are.

This event reminds me that 'normal' is often sad & lonely rather than mistletoe & jolly.

Music and voices will soon fill the huge arena. Meri Kirihimete!
