Did you bring home a huge XMas Tree or a Charlie Brown Tree?

I suppose we all have our own way of showing lots of cheer or very lil.

We got a 5’ 8” tree, pretty full, just a bit quirky.

Any tree decorated with love is perfect.

Charlie Brown’s tree was ”...not bad at all, really.Maybe it just needs a little love”. (-Linus Van Pelt)

Our local xmas tree farm has “special” trees, which are marked with blue tags. They are a bit funky, but we like them like that (plus, they’re less expensive). We tag them in late November, and then head back a couple of weeks later to saw it down. Our tree this year has a freakishly-thin trunk and is a bit thin in parts. Does the job, however.

We use an artificial tree. When I was growing up we’d go over on the hill and cut a Charlie Brown tree. It did everything we needed plus it was put up with love. That’s what really counts. :)

No tree. The kitten would destroy it.

But my sister has one and we are doing the holiday stuff at her house.

The tree we got this year is 7 feet tall and is my current avatar.

@johnpowell Cats do love them. Our cats sleep under our tree every year, but kittens would definitely be all over it. Did you name it yet?

No name yet.. I am leaning towards Superhoodie since misfits is the best show ever and I am stupid.

My female mother cat is is now Dobby due to my insane love of Peep Show.

Dobby is set in stone.

We are broke college students so our tree looked like this.

We bought a 9’ tall artificial tree, which is beautiful. My wife also pulled a 3’ artificial tree out of storage, and it is as ugly as imaginable. She insisted on decorating it. As far as I am concerned, she just put lipstick on a pig, but she is happy with it.

We brought home an 8 ft scotch pine this year. Our Santa topper barely fit.

@ jonsblond Looks up: WOW did you get a nose bleed way up there? lol Its a lovely tree!

Haha. Not quite. thank you

You just reminded me of the time when my husband poked his eye with a needle one year when he was putting lights on the tree. We ended up in the emergency room and he wore a patch on his eye that Christmas.

we can laugh about it now

I gave away most of my Christmas ornaments except sentimental ones to the Goodwill Thrift shope for others to have a good Christmas.
I picked up an old fish tank and filled with fake snow and added animal figures to depict a country scene , then I added a 12 inch spruce tree with lights.
I saw a beautiful display in a florist shop of a glass bubble with an opening with a country scene as well..very expensive but look fantastic. One can creat your own with a huge bottle on its side the same way as ships in a bottle look.
