So I was bitching at a party in December 1999 no, not about Y2K problems, har, har, chortle, gag! but about how depressing it is each year to have to take the Christmas Tree down.
"Hell, THIS YEAR, I'm gonna leave that sucker up ALL YEAR LONG!" I bragged. "Yeah, gonna decorate it for EVERY HOLIDAY. Yup, that's what I'm gonna do...."
So about a month later, I'm walking around one of the buildings where I work, and this secretary comes up to me and says,
"So, do you have your tree decorated for the next holiday now?"Heh, she thought I was SERIOUS, I thought. Wait. Why not? WHY NOT DO IT??? AHH! AHHHHHHHH!!!! (oops, sorry. I was channeling Sam Kinnison there for a minute.)
SO I DID! And here's where it took me....
|Well, of course, first there was its Chrismas Tree identity. Note the "Jack in the Box" Yr2000 Antenna Ball in place of a star. Nice touch, eh?|
|Forget Martin Luther King, Jr., Day, that came up too quick. Rather, the next change was, St. Valentine's Tree!|
|Then we have, St. Paddy's Tree!!|
|OK here's EASTER TREE!! With little eggs left by Easter Bunny....and some detail:
|Think I've gotten sick of this yet? NO! Here's FOURTH OF JULY TREE! And check out the detail:
|OK NOW we're talking!! Some actual CREATIVITY *here*!! Read the whole story of Halloween Tree. It's SCAAAAAAAAREY!!!|
|Believe it or not, Turkey Tree, as fantastic as I KNOW you all
think it is, is a compromise. I really did look for a giant Turkey head to put on the top, and make the whole tree a Turkey! (Sigh)
Ah, the compromises we must make, for time and pocketbook...

And guess who's carving the bird??
So now it's December

Oh, Merry Christmas Anyway!
NOTE: The tree is not deathly white, it is ARTIFICIAL!!!So *Yes*, I CAN DO THIS and not be harboring a fire hazard....
