so i've had huge issues on whether i cut a christmas tree or not. it seems a waste of a tree. but i folded when my friend taylor invited me to come with his family. i couldn't help it if the tree was raised on a tree farm to be cut. i justified the act by supporting a local business in these hard economic times. also they even had a tree shaker to shake the needles off. i'm sorry but that's cool. i also wanted to look like griswalds. and i cut it myself and it's an exceptional smell in my home. i'm sorry i do love it.
