Lobster Pot Trees - Merry Christmas!

 These lobster pot trees are a New England tradition.  In the past, lobster fishermen have piled their traps in their yards for the winter, and some were creative in making them into Christmas trees for the holidays.  Then some appeared in harbors and on village greens.  Now coastal towns are featuring more and more lobster trap trees.  No two are alike, and all are welcome signs of the holidays!
