Now this is a classic Christmas tree.

Check out the wonderful Christmas tree at the home of my friend and colleague, Jim Kempster. Each year, he and his partner Bob Loncar, outdo themselves in decorating their West Village apartment. Enjoy the photos, and Merry Christmas!

The main Christmas tree is loaded with ornaments from all eras, 1800s to the 1950s: kugels, glass figurals and beads, paper cutouts, oil candles, clip-ons, and a sunburst star on top.
