If You See A Scarf Tied Around A Tree In Your City This Holiday Season, It Means This

Decorating the house, buying all the gifts, and making a fancy dinner are some of the activities we do when the holiday season is approaching. Although we expend a wonderful time during this festivity sometimes we lose perspective about the true meaning of Christmas. This is the main reason why people from all around the country are getting into this new tradition, that is becoming a splendid trending topic.

Despite what you might think when you see people putting scarves around trees and light poles, they are not really trying to make them more aesthetically pleasing. These classy trees have a better reason to get all well dressed for Christmas and we are going to tell you why.

A great number of people from all across the cities are knitting scarves or getting rid of the old ones by putting them around the trees and light poles in the neighborhood. These fashion accessories are left behind with the sole purpose of helping the homeless endure the cold of the winter.

The scarves are free for anyone who needs isolation against the freezing temperatures and extreme weather conditions. But it is not only protection they provide, there is a more profound meaning to this, as many of the scarves are left with a note like this one: “I’m not lost! Please take me with you if you are cold. Stay warm. God bless!”

In a difficult situation, a positive mind can help you survive almost any circumstance in your life, so it’s very clear that the people who leave the scarves behind are trying to cheer up the less fortunate during the holiday season. Like a warm hug for the body and spirit.

Good citizens like Elizabeth Sammons make the scarves by hand using knitting techniques they learned some years before. With passion and patience, she created dozens of these clothing accessories for the homeless. In an interview with WCCO News Elizabeth spoke about how wonderful she feels by helping other people: “I think it’s a great thing to be able to do for the community. There’s a lot of people behind it, a lot of support. It’s really nice.”

Word spread all around the country, as fast as wildfire. When people started to hear about this new tradition which was created in the city of Seymour-Indiana lots of charity organizations, churches, and other people joined in to contribute with thousands of scarves for American homeless people. With actions like this one, we can be sure that there is still a warm hope for everybody at Christmas! If you want to get more information about this new trend, just watch the video below and enjoy.
