You Aren’t The Only One With Christmas Tree Problems
We’ve all been there you are putting up the Christmas tree and it turns into a disaster. I mean it’s a little weird to be trying to mount a tree in your house in the first place.
I have seen trees that need to be spun so you don’t see the bare side that was growing too close to another tree.
My family used to go cut our own tree from a generous neighbor's land. After a few years my pops, out of concern for the slow growth of evergreens, started bringing home taller sage bushes trying to pass them off as Christmas trees.
How about the crooked trees? Sometimes they seem bent to stay bent. My friend was so tired of the difficult shapes of live trees that he finally got an artificial one. While it sat in storage something must have been leaning on it because it came out as bent as the real ones he had been struggling with.
If your tree raising troubles make you feel too much like a Grinch in a Whoville Shop, know that even the pros suffer the same issues we do. For example, the 40-foot-tall National tree blew down this week. A gust of wind blew that mighty tree to its side making it look like Randy stuck in his overstuffed snow suit.
Sounds a bit like Saturday afternoon after you got the lights all strung and you realize they don’t reach the socket, doesn’t it?
The crew was called in to fix the snapped cable, by crew I think they must mean your in-laws called in by your spouse whose belief in you has sunk lower than Santa Clause’s belief-O-Meter that keeps his sleigh the air.
And get this they secured the base with concrete blocks. Don’t tell me you never used concrete blocks to counter the awkward weight of a stubborn tree.
Yeah, the national tree has nothing on you. We are all living the same well intended, hope not to lose your holiday cool problems.
