Every day from December 1st until Christmas I'm hanging an ornament in an outside public place as a Random Act of Christmas Cheer.
This afternoon I've been invited to a holiday brunch. I wanted to bring the hostess a thank you gift but I know she's trying to eat healthy, so a box of candy or a traditional Christmas sweet didn't seem appropriate. I was looking around at a store that specializes in natural and organic groceries, where I found a potted 'holiday bouquet' that contains small rosemary, sage, and thyme plants. It seemed perfect; my friend can either use it as a house plant or in her cooking.
On the way out of the store's parking lot I hung the day's ornament on the tree next to my car.
