The Odd Christmas Tree


In my blog, Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, I made a little ditty about how my Christmas tree fell on me while we were putting it up.

The day after we put it up, I got home from work and the damn tree had fallen. I picked it up, added more water to it and walked outside to smoke and it fell down again. I didn't think one bit about the water spilling on my brand new, just laid berber carpet. We straightened the tree again and it kept falling over. I turned the leaning part to the window and let it rest there. We had only put the lights on it. No decorations, no garland, just lights.

It's been a couple weeks since we put the tree up. Still never decorated it. The kids didn't want to decorate it, because it kept falling. They didn't even like this tree anymore.

NO matter how hard we tried to keep it alive, we just did not succeed. A few days ago I was looking at the tree and noticed a nice pile of pine needles on the floor. I stroked one of the branches and it stripped bare of it's needles. I then bent the branch and it snapped it two.

Now the tree is leaning, and dead. We just took it down. My sons friend decided to decorate my new lamp and planter and make that our Christmas tree. The kids love it. I'll get pictures and share soon.

Merry Christmas.

TTigerAtty the crazy thing is we DO have an artificial tree. But with the newly remodeled house we all wanted a fresh tree. Next year we will use the tree my father bought for us two years ago. I have not had ONE SINGLE kiss this season. Well, except from my children.

Stories like these are why I haven't regretted passing on the tree for the past eight Christmas seasons. The broken bulbs, the needles-through-the-socks-into-the-foot, the entire idea of a dead slab of wood soaking in water while wrapped with live electrical wiring over a pile of paper and cardboard. Hmmm, whose idea wa this???

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...
