Open Thread: Trees of January

At some point when I was --if not a child-- still a kid, it occurred to me that one possible reason that Christmas cards looked nothing like the muddy reality of Christmas where I lived was because, perhaps, the pictures on them were taken in January and February.

Mind you, my word-replacement slip-up thing that I inherited from my mother almost had me calling them the trees of July, which would paint a very different picture of the climate here given that, I think, people are generally aware that I live in the northern hemisphere.

Regardless, it was this or a picture of a button that said, "Don't make me throw this golden apple..."
