The Building is Topped Out

20112009118 The building being built outside my office window has reached its final height it seems as today I noticed the tree on the top of the building. This is usually an evergreen tree and it is normally placed atop the building when the last roof beam is placed. No one is really sure where the practice came from but it does seem to trace back to early Scandinavia.

Of course, it is doubly nice as we are approaching Christmas and it is a pine tree.
