For me, the end of the year has a very special meaning, since my first day on the staff of the Chronicle-Independent was Dec. 30, 2013. Happy anniversary to me. Yes, indeed, it is.

The candlelight church services will be over, meals will have been eaten, the presents opened and the relatives come and gone (or not). What still remains, though, are the "hanging of the greens." This includes wreaths, door drapery, mantel mounds, banister baubles and of course the Christmas tree. Whether your greenery is real, artificial or some of both, its use and display are steeped in tradition from centuries ago.
