I reiterated to my husband the other day about how I prefer to have a live Christmas Tree because they're going to be cut down anyway, and I don't want the trees to not fulfill their purpose in life. This is the conversation that ensued.
ME: When a tree doesn't get a home, I bet the ones that do probably make fun of them for not getting decorated and are all "OMG, you're NEKKID"
HIM: Nah, they're probably just too cool for decorations. You know, they don't like to conform to Christmas tree society standards. Or, they could be allergic to tinsel.
Me: Maybe they grow awkwardly on purpose so they won't get picked. They tell the other trees, "Yeah, I didn't grow any needles on this side intentionally."
HIM: Sure, and they're all "See my funky long arm over here, I MEANT to do that."
Me: Right, they also might be afraid of what kind of home they get put in. You know, they could be afraid of cats getting all up in their branches.
Him: AND, there's the whole being strung with electricity to consider.
Me: Absolutely, they might catch on fire.
Him: Or they could be Jewish. . .
So, now I'm not sure if I'll be getting a tree or not. You know, because I don't want to disregard their religious beliefs, or fears, or allergies, or coolness. Heck, they might even be part of an "Occupy Christmas Tree Lot Movement".
Anyway. . .
While I've brought up the holidays I do want to remind you that I'll be participating in the Holiday Shop Hop 2011 hosted by Shel of MiShel Designs. The hop will be on December 3rd and 4th.
Some of the shops participating will be offering discounts in their stores especially for those who come by as part of the shop hop. I'll be one of those. SO! Mark you calendars and hop by either my or Shel's blogs that weekend for the complete list of participants!
That is all. Carry on.
