In the interests of full disclosure, I must tell you that we have an artificial (or phony, as my two brats...I mean wonderful kids) Christmas tree at our house. And, it's things like this that make me glad we do.
A number of years ago, much to the dismay of our kids, Amy and I made the decision to switch from live Christmas trees to an artificial tree. We were tired of the needles and the mess that came along with a live tree, and since neither one of them ever lifted even a finger to help with clean-up and/or removal, we made the move and have never looked back. At the end of the season, our tree is dis-a
My kids still shake their heads (smh, in their text-language) and wonder if I'm serious when I tell them, that as a kid, my grandparents had actual lit candles on their Christmas tree.
It's true. I'm sure some of you recall folks "back in the day" who did the same thing...
