Winner: Most Pathetic Tree

This is our Christmas tree. It looks slightly better in real life, but has several major flaws. First, and possibly worst, it is an artificial tree. We inherited it from some friends last year. There are few real Christmas trees here and most people use fake ones. Last year there were no fresh trees, to the best of my knowledge, but this year the Boy Scouts imported some from somewhere and probably made a killing on them. New sashes for everyone! But we decided to stick with our fake tree and just envy all those satisfied Boy Scout customers. Then, as you can see, we could only decorate the top third of the tree. The ornaments are plastic balls, pinecones and ribbons, because we can't have any glass. And, sadly, there are no presents. Grinch, thy name is Shane!

Anna,

Our tree also has ornaments half way up and higher! But it is real (yet practically dead)...so if you want the smell of fresh dead pine needles, come on up!

"New sashes for everyone"....hahahahahahahahah.

I like your tree. Don't be so negative.

We have an ornament bare-patch too. Just about the same size as Emma.
