I have always loved Christmas and start playing
carols right after Halloween. So it wasn’t unusual that
my roommate and I were discussing dorm decorations
as we walked back to campus from Williamsport late
one afternoon. Passing by Old Main, we noticed a
forlorn evergreen tree thrown on the ground behind
the building. We immediately “topped” about three
feet for our room.
The following evening, we were aghast as we
entered the student union building and noticed a very
tall, fully decorated Christmas tree ... missing its top!
We had no idea that was its intended use, and kept the
secret for the next 50 years!
We didn’t look like tree thieves — we were involved
in many campus activities, and I was even named
Chieftain that year. We just couldn’t “come clean,”
although no one asked.
I hadn’t recalled this for 50 years. Now my three
children and their children have been told and they
kid me about respecting their trees!
