X-Mas Tree, I haz it!

I was aiming for a smaller tree this year. Last year's tree was smaller and went for $65 bucks. I rather spend those bucks in toys this year. Then I spotted this guy selling trees on my way to work, with really good prices. I came back later with my children and got this deal for $25 bucks (plz notice it's 3 inches short of hitting the ceiling):



The guy even gave my child some toys for free (two stuffed reindeer).

you murdered a tree!

jk. sounds like quite a deal. We always had a plastic tree when I was growing up- ma didn't want the mess (and apparently fire hazard) of a real one.

I had fake trees for Christmas as a kid. They always resembled hat racks with lots of decorations on it. And a cat doing his best to knock the tree over.

Real - always real. And when I was a kid we'd go out into the bush to cut down our own.
