Oh Christmas Tree
What the hell is this tree? They are called upside down trees and they are irritating the CRAP OUT OF ME. We saw them for the first time tonight at American Sales and they had many on display. They're appealing to people because they save space, but I actually get dizzy when I look at them, I feel off balance and I hate it. Have any of you seen these anywhere? Do you like them? Do you have one? I hate them.
Tonight, at 7pm, we packed the chickens up and we headed out to find a Christmas tree. Supposedly, we are going to have a blizzard tomorrow, so I thought it would be fun to have a tree. We went to Menard's, American Sales, CostCo, Lowe's, K-Mart and Old Time Pottery. And we came home with some shelves for our basement. I'm feeling a little defeated and discouraged. So, let me ask you this, if you have a real tree in your house...why? Growing up, we always had artificial trees, it's all I know. I've only heard negative things about a real tree--like the needles constantly fall off and apparently you have to water it. (oh and you continue to find needles until July--is this true?!?!) I understand they smell good, but so do candles. I know some people have real trees because it's traditional. We have neighbors that go out and cut their own tree down every year. It's their tradition. I'm pretty sure they do it just so they can say it's their tradition, but whatever. Are there other benefits to a real tree? I want to try it, I really do, I LOVE the price and the idea of a real tree, but is it really worth it? Please help me!
