Pic(k) of the Week: Christmas Tree 2012.

Nicholas of Myra was a 4th-century Christian bishop, later canonized a Christian saint. The patron saint of brewers —and repentant thieves!— he is, thus, without doubt, a person of exalted influence. Centuries later, Nicholas would become the inspiration for the modern-day Santa Claus.

Today, 6 December, is his Christian feast day.

Christmas tree 2012

In 2012, the tree in the photo would be my mother's penultimate Christmas tree. She liked that little gnome from Brasserie D'Achouffe in Belgium. And she liked its does her son. She placed 'Chouffie' under the tree.

Within the last few months, this photo, of no particular panache, has received in excess of 5,000 12,000 views (on Flickr). Some of those —perhaps, appropriately— today.
