Dad Places 35ft Christmas Tree in 16ft House

Last year one of Greig Howe’s sons complained the Christmas tree was so small.

This year he won’t.

In response Greig has bought a $380 Christmas tree measuring no less than 35 feet.

Tiny problem: the corner of the two story Howe’s residence where the Christmas tree stands is only 16 feet high.

No problem though.

Greig has cut the tree in 3 segments, placing one in the living room, one in a bedroom on the second floor, and the top part outside on the roof.

It took a firefighter crane truck to place the star on top.



Holiday Spirit

Argh, now I did it myself! [backspace] Holiday Christmas spirit.

There. That’s better.

Sorry but I couldn’t help myself any longer. With 43 days to go until Christmas I’ve placed the first Christmas ornament in my office. OK, it’s tiny but still…

It’s a little house, snow decorated, that sits on top of my printer. No worries, it won’t fall because I don’t use my printer that often. All digital here, you know.

It was wonderful to be out today really shopping around for the perfect Christmas decoration to put up first. Because, yes, everything is still wrapped up in boxes in the basement. So I just “had” to buy something…

It comes from a dollar shop but that doesn’t change anything for me. Hey, in fact, it makes the thing feel that much more joyful to me then when it would have cost ten times more!

Christmas: it’s the cozy season.
