    Everyone post their Christmas Tree

    I don't have mine up yet, but here is Siu's.



    The reason she went with a live tree with the bells was so her one cat wouldn't knock it down. She puts the tree outside when she isn't home.
    Strike like an eagle and sacrifice the dove.
    Words and Stuff.

    Dan had to post it since I can't find my camera or cell phone cords. I must admit that using bells as ornaments defeated the purpose. But I did get a Blue Spruce!

    When it grows up it should look like this the two on the left. The one on the right is a Fat Albert blue:



    It has a natural cone shape so it doesn't have to be shaped by trimmer.

    My Christmas tree:

    I sewed felt squares together, sewed on some bells and pinned the ornaments on the Pin-Up Tree. I have very little open space in my apartment but plenty of blank walls so I figured I'd have a pin-up tree instead. Every year I add a couple of new ornaments. The nice thing about my Pin-Up Tree is at the end of the Christmas Season I can roll it up and store it until the next year.

    Thank you, Siu. My mom calls the tree "The Desperation Tree". Me and the tree ignore her (unless she's holding a box of chocolates).

    That tree is special because it's what you made with what you have and what is in your heart. It's representative of YOU. It's awesome!

    No Christmas tree here. My wife says it's just a mess for her to clean up. AND its an artificial one. I put up a little one in my office instead.

    Let's keep the posts here tree-related. Religious posts need to go in P&R.

    Still bigger than mine. I had to put mine outside last night so Sakima wouldn't tear it up. Blue Spruce is supposed to be deer proof but it's not Sakima proof.
