Monday's Postcard: Wilmington, NC

Where I grew up, this was labeled the World's Largest Living Christmas Tree! It is a 300 year old Live Oak and covered with more than 4,000 multi-colored lights. So famous, it has a postcard made for it!! However, this year it looks like they will not be lighting the tree. They say that the oak is now too old to support the lights. Here is a link to a story about the tree.

It was such a nice tradition but i guess they can't risk losing the tree. The lighted tree will be missed. Sue

Beautiful tree! Sad that they're not able to light it, but it's a good thing that they're more concerned about the health of the tree.
