The Christmas Ladder enjoyed it’s first news hit today on boston.com. The coverage was a little too focused on me and marketing the Christmas Ladder, but the article is accurate in relating the original event and even properly refers to “asthma episode,” rather than the inaccurate “asthma attack,” terminology.
To quote, “The tale hangs on a true event in the Boches family history. Nine years ago, the family’s first Christmas tree triggered a severe asthma episode in Boches’ then three-year-old daughter. The tree had to go, and in its stead, the family decorated a step ladder with white lights and ornaments. It’s a tradition the Boches family has kept ever since.”
