Every newly married couple has to reconcile the holiday traditions they grew up with. Probably the most difficult conflicts to negotiate are the mutually exclusive choices. 

For example: To top the Christmas tree with an ornament or not? Diana and I took years to find an answer that pleased both of us. 

I grew up in a family that always topped the Christmas tree with a star-shaped ornament. Diana, on the other hand, likes a Christmas tree without anything on the top branch. 

Eventually she thought of an alternative that works for us. Now we put the tree-topping ornaments on my Hugos, not on the tree.

  1. Show off! Besides… you probably swiped the idea from the time, years ago, when I visited you and Diane and dressed up the Hugo on the TV set with a G.I. Joe costume I happened to have. (And I have the negatives still. You never paid the blackmail!)
