As always, you are welcome to celebrate the winter holidays in any way you choose, or not at all. If that means rolling up to the H-E-B Curbside pickup and having a precut, prewrapped Christmas tree tossed in the back of your truck, or assembling your heirloom midcentury aluminum one again, so be it.
