    Sooooo thought I was gonna do one this year, sure have missed many aspects of the real Christmas tree, but logistically it just doesn't make any sense.
    Ended up buying one of those goofy-lookin', fake thingies in the market. I'll cover the heck outa' it with Cajun colored decorations (now where can I find plastic lobsters??????) Bought some purple garland hoy, have some gold string beads, just gotta track down an appropriate green addition, and the colors will be right.
    I'm thinking hot sauce or maybe macaroons as a Christmas treat for party-goers. Anyway, the party is coming together....look in your inbox for your invite!

    My wife about 10 years ago bought one of 'em plastic trees with a DVD in the bottom that makes all kinds of different colors, pissed me off a bit with the price......

    But actually it was cheap considering we still using it for the "Pagan" celibrations.....

    When Hurricane Felix came it flew 2 or 3 hundred feet from the attic, across the grass lands before coming to a stop in a swamp.....

    But still works......

    Luckily i still have my old christmas tree shipped in from the states in a container. The old 7 foot pine with lots of branches looks like the real thing !!

    Lets face it, a fresh one gone be a fire hazard.....

    But then again that might bring a bit of festivities to the celebrations if don't nobody get burned up in the process.....

    We have an Oriental Market tree my wife picked up a few years ago, its made out of flexible metal branches, problem is that its starting to corrode and the plastic tree stuff is starting to fall off. I think this year it will be fine, we will cover it with ribbon and decorations, next year might need a new tree though.

    The sale price is pretty good. Up here, they're $35-50 for a live tree.
