16) A Georgia family got a real hoot from their Christmas tree: more than a week after they bought it, they discovered a live owl nestled among its branches. Katie McBride Newman said on Friday that she and her daughter spotted the bird on December12. They had bought the 10ft-tall tree from a Home Depot, brought it back to their Atlanta area home and decorated it with lights and, coincidentally, owl ornaments. The family opened windows and doors near the tree hoping the owl would fly away, but it didn’t. So the family called a not-for-profit nature center for help. The Chattahoochee Nature Center caught the bird and helped the family release it. Photo: Billy Newman/AP

Franklin ‘s Judy Harris Mantey, a good friend, recently visited family at the Nantucket Christmas Stroll. Judy was there with her sisters. Here’s another look. And another. Oh, what the heck. One more. A couple of these ended up in the local newspaper. Odd. I don’t see the husbands in any. Hmm. Photos: Facebook
