The Cleveland tree is a New London, New Hampshire family tradition that was started more than 20 years ago. Every year, just after Thanksgiving David Cleveland runs what seems like miles of electrical cord out to the middle of Cleveland Field on Main St. in New London, New Hampshire.

Thanks so much to A G Evans Photography for this lovely photo. A. Garrett Evans writes:
