Christmas trees when furloughs and layoffs are at an all-time high. Who cares if you don't have a Christmas tree?

Nothing wrong with local trees or artificial trees, too.
this could be said about thousands of things in everone's lives

do have any idea how much some simple flowers cost from the florist?

lucky if you find anything for less than $40 --- and it doesn't last for weeks

How about buying a small live tree and then planting it in a special spot after Christmas?
That's what we did this year. We have a little norfolk pine grown in Aunty's backyard here on Maui. No chemicals, all natural. After Christmas, it will be taken out to our yard to continue to grow. As for the smell...light a candle, get some potpourri, or buy a wreath.

I told you so...Mufi's $7.6 Billion dollar rail requires extra taxation in the tune of over $4000 per year each...has drained the pocketbooks of us taxpayers and your ability to purchase Christmas items for your kids!
You can all thank that Samonan thug for robbing your parent's bank accounts in order to get kickbacks from his Rail cronies!
With any luck, he will leave office and campaign against Abercrombie. This may be the way he is looking for to get out of this train mess and try to reconvert his ex-followers who now hate him.

I never could understad why this is not done for Christmas display in town instead of killing a big healthy tree.
Probably union tree cutters would protest. LOL

Buy Christmas trees so you can be the first to fill your rubbish cans full the day after Christmas.
This is such a waste of money. No need tree, get a life! If you must have a tree and if you are really that brainwashed by the huge department stores then get an imitation one and use it forever.
Somehow this makes me think of people killing baby seals so they can make cute little baby seal dolls.
Halloween and christmas is for the children not old futs like you. Its a time for giving to your family and friends. It brings excitement to kids and is a happy time. Addition of a tree if you can afford it enhances the children excitement. Some families are poor and the kids get nothing, but that doesn't stop christmas now does it. Thats why if you can you should give some donations to the less fortunate. Don't be a bah humbug.
