Is your Christmas tree still up

Driving down Fayette Street here in Conshy – I saw someone’s Christmas tree still up and lit in their apartment. January 17th is much too late for that. Anyway, it reminded me of a “Christmas” song from Holly Golightly called “Christmas Tree on Fire”, which I’m streaming below.
