Pot­hole Christmas tree in­spires pas­tor

Antelope Valley Press - - Second Front -

McCOMB, Miss. — A scrag­gly metal Christmas tree planted in a pot­hole has in­spired a Mis­sis­sippi min­is­ter to pen a hol­i­day song.

One bit asks, “If a man can take a pot­hole and bring the whole world to­gether, the ques­tion is what are you do­ing to spread the Christmas joy?”

The Rev. Leon Hitchens of Webb Chapel Church in Lib­erty wrote “Pot­hole Christmas Tree” af­ter lo­cal ra­dio host Fern Cross­ley showed him the makeshift hol­i­day scene, the En­ter­prise-Jour­nal of McComb re­ported.

The song cel­e­brates John Drum­mond, who stuck the base of a wire Christmas tree into the traf­fic cone stick­ing out of the pot­hole.
