One of the traditions at the Department of Defense headquarters is the annual Christmas tree trimming. Everyone brings a ornament to trim the Christmas tree in the second floor hallway. Some make their own ornaments while others bring one or more from their homes.

Following the trimming, there is some sharing of food and drink. What started years ago as punch and cookies evolved to a breakfast and coffee, with a lot of desserts.

The photograph above is from December 4, 2007, taken in the HQ, Hawaii Air National Guard kitchen area. In the photograph are (L-R) are Olivia Yee, Carolyn Taketa, Blossom Logan and Mabel Requilman. They are getting the donated food ready for the buffet table.

It was always a good time!
