Hello, Bob...

Could you briefly answer the enclosed?  I know this tradition goes back
centuries, but I can't lay my hands on the answer right away -- its
buried somewhere in my office.

I'd like to use this letter and your reply on our letters page.

Happy New Year...

Dear WTB:

I just learned of the tradition of placing a tree at the highest point of a
building when construction is complete.  How did this tradition start?  Is there
more to it than just putting the tree up there?

Thanks for your time.
