Usually I get a good start every year around late Nov. to early Dec. in putting up my real tree. This year however this was the latest I ever waited (Dec.15). I usually take my tree down the day after Christmas because by them the tree has dried out and I get tired of looking at it and the pine needles all over the floor. It's a bitch getting out of the living room door while trying to get that sucker outside without making a huge mess with pine needles flying everywhere. Not sure I'll do ity this soon since I haven't had this tree long at all. I'm sure I'll have it down by New Years Day however. So, when are you taking your tree down, and usually what's the average time you wait every year to get around to doing that?

Btw, I remember one year back about 10 years ago that my mom's current bf had left his tree sitting out in the front yard up against the porch for the few first days before the wind eventually blew it across his yard. This was across the street from in front of my house where I had to look at it everyday in that yard of his till the huge gust of wind blew that sucker in and up the street from me a few months later on the month of April. Someone had finally taken it out of the street and stuck it a couple of places up from me on my side of the street leaning up against a business. One night while my cousin was down here I had him go retrieve it and throw it in my pile of garbage out back so the garbage service could take the damn thing away finally.

No Tree this year, but usually I put it up right after Thanksgiving and take it down New Years Day. One year I had a fake tree and I loved it, I left the thing up with only the lights left on it until Valentine's Day!! I had red and white lights on it. My friends Loved It!

VG, all I did with my tree over the past two or three years was just put the lights on it. Of course I stuck the Angel on top of it as well. lol


Here's another question for you guys since I didn't stick it in the blog itself. What do you guys put on top of your tree, an Angel or Star? I'm very partial to the Angel we have always had when I was growing up. It's nothing fancy or anything, just had it for years and what it represents.

Dayna, I used to have a time with my cats always trying to climb it. Not so bad anymore, but every now and then they will be curious enough to want to play with the bottom lights on it. lol

Fake tree...goes up right after Thanksgiving and is usually down sometime between Christmas and New Years depending on my work schedule and life. Two hundred plus ornaments. For years I had just a bow (or nothing) on top of the tree. A few years ago I got a star. One of those Mediterranean looking ones with lots of points and lots of stars cut in the metal for the light to shine through.

I don't know when I will take mine down but not til after New Years day at least. It's artificial so it's not a problem..
It's just me here --most of the time--but I wouldn't give up my tree.

I have a couple different angel tree toppers. A star and depending on what color scheme I go with that year I might make bows for on it with matching ribbon around the tree.

This year I tried something different and put a beautiful angel on top with a 3 layer deep red and gold bow in front of her and the bows tails running down the tree. And matching ribbon around it.Sounds weird but everyone has fallen in love with it.

Shawn the tree preserver really does help the needles from coming out so much.

My tree goes up the weekend after thanksgiving and comes down Jan 1 or as soon as I can get away with it after christmas.

Definately more fun putting it up than taking it down.

geez... what is this .. a sequel to blended rat?
What a way to spoil a beautiful holiday
by spewing out horror stories about Christmas trees ...
three days before Christmas, no less.
I love them. I don't have one,
but wherever I go,
we turn on all the tree lights,
and turn out the room lights
and sit in the dark looking at it
and listening to Christmas music.......
WOW!!!!
I will go to any friend's house
to help take out the tree
if they need help taking out the tree
when it's time to take out the tree.

If I had my way I would not put up a tree. I let my daughter do it. I put it together for her (fake tree) and she put the decorations on it. It will come down around New Year's. I can't get into the Christmas spirit. I have a big red bow on the top of my tree.

Merry Christmas Shawn
