Everyone remember the classic animated Charlie Brown Christmas Special? Charlie picked up the saddest looking little Christmas tree. A little decoration and love and it was just fine.
This year that's the tree we've got. I'm not sure how much decoration and love can help it. Charlie might have passed it up.
Since when does a Christmas tree have to be perfect? Tree farms do a pretty good job of growing and preparing some good looking trees. Maybe I'm too cheap, but I have a hard time shelling out good money for a tree. Instead, I put up with a little “character.”
I might have gone too far with this one. In my defense it was getting dark and Christmas waits for no man. This poor tree wasn't long for the world anyway. Sometime in February the tree trimmers are going to clear out around the power lines. This poor little tree was right under the lines.
Might as well have it go in a burst of glory.
Merry Christmas everyone!
We didn't have a tree this year as the kids did not make it home. Still nice that it's Christmas though.ReplyDelete
I am blessed that most of my family will make it.Delete
At least it will have served a purpose and won't be wasted! Merry, Merry Christmas to you and yours Sixbears!ReplyDelete
The same to you and yours Chickenmom!Delete
I always look for a Charlie Brown tree. We dress it up and then, when it comes down, it goes on the burn pile for next year's Solstice fire. It has served a noble purpose. Hope yours is a very Merry. Bright blessings for the new year,ReplyDelete
Glad I'm not the only one. Bright blessings to you too Momlady!Delete
We always got our trees out of the pasture when I was a kid; they tended to be fuller. I don't know if it was the fact that the cows kept down competeing competition or all that organic fertilizer!ReplyDelete
I'm sure it was both. Merry Christmas Gorges!Delete
