"Ghosts" of Christmas' Past, Christmas Trees

We buy our Christmas tree on Dec. 1st.
This particular year (2004), we visited
a tree farm for the first (and only) time.
We picked out our tree, took turns sawing
it down, hauled it to the car, etc. It was
quite an experience! Unfortunately, it
was one of the worst trees we've ever had!
To begin with, it was infested with ants!
It was brittle within two weeks, meaning
we could not even light it up without risk
of fire in the living room, not that there were
too many needles left on it by that point!

Needless to say, that tree is memorable!
