They came in a big truck. It took the five men all of ten minutes and it was gone.

When they put up the tree a few weeks before Thanksgiving I was surprised. “It’s a bit early, no?” I heard myself asking. I thought the tree was quite ugly….it just had too much happening on it. And then the comments started. “OMG! You guys have your tree up? It’s not even Thanksgiving yet!” I had to listen to this over and over and over again. Why people felt the need to point out the nine and a half foot tree standing right in front of us was beyond me. Anyway overtime I got used to the tree and it actually started to look less ugly. This one super mean lady said “Wow! Your tree is up huh? I don’t want to be rude or anything but you can totally tell it’s fake!” That was when I lost it. I mean how rude!!! I found myself defending the tree. “Well I think it’s quite pretty”, I lied.
Anyway it’s been two months and Christmas has come and gone but I’ve gotten so used to the tree. It’s actually quite pretty. And I’m not lying this time. It has this aura about it and it makes the whole place look so much warmer. (Almost makes you forget all the blizzards we’ve been having…well maybe not) But now it’s gone and the room feels so empty. All that’s left is the glitter on the floor. :(
