It was actually an older gentleman in the community that decorated it. Last spring, his daughter, age 36, passed away very unexpectedly. The little tree is decorated in her memory. The tree is located just outside of a pasture where he hunts. I don't think he ever actually kills anything, but just goes up there to walk and think. Most of the ornaments on the tree had been gifts to him and his wife from his daughter.
I know that he has been grieving a lot these past few months. His wife told me that this is a way that he wanted to deal with his grief and that 'Krissy' had always loved Christmas. So this is Krissy's Christmas tree.
