19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Sisters and the Christmas Tree

As soon as our daughters old enough to understand the concept of Christmas, it became our tradition to put up and decorate our Christmas tree every winter. I grew up in Korea until I was 14, and we did not do this in Korea. After immigrating to the US, my parents and my brother still did not do this because it just wasn't in our family routine. I am 40 years old, and this is my 3rd time decorating a Christmas tree.
