A Charlie Brownish HNT

If you wait until December 12 to go buy a Christmas tree...

You'll find that there are no live trees left at the 3 places you went to.

You'll find that the only fake trees left cost $100 and look like toilet bowl brushes. You can buy the display tree of one of the nice fake trees but who wants a tree that everyone else has fondled?

You will buy a tiny tree just to have one.

Charlie Brown Tree

Next year, we will go tree shopping a bit earlier.

Last year we had a small tree because of the same reason - we waited way too late. Which is why I got my tree the first week of December this year. No one has fondled it and there was a huge selection.

I like your tree! I would have liked to have a smaller one, but I bought the smallest they had.

It's not the size that counts (that's my mantra by the way...). I like it!

Aww... what a lovely little tree. I decorated one like that for my grandmother when she was in the hospital last year. I think your tree is beautiful.

HHNT & Happy Holidays!

As they say, it's not the size that matters! This is a sweet little tree.

Happy HNT sweetie ;)

I never understand why places run out of things so early during the Christmas season. They are so afraid of being stuck with a few leftovers that they miss out on a bunch of sales. I'd rather sell twice as many and have a few left. I know that they would like to think otherwise but not everyone does all of their holiday preparations in November.

Anyway, your tree looks very cute. I just hope that Tiny doesn't try to eat it.

Well every cloud has a silver lining and you have given me a great idea. I am going to Wal*Mart immediately if not sooner to buy some lights to put on my toilet bowl brush.

I was so worried about what I was going to do for a Christmas tree. Now you have solved the problem for me.

Thanks.

Hey everybody! Thanks for stopping by!

Joey Polanski - Why didn't I see this joke coming?

The Phosgene Kid - The parks only have palm trees. I'll gut myself before I decorate one of those.

Midwestern City Boy - On the plus side, the tree is too high up for Tiny to get to it. I think!

Mike - Glad that I could help spread some Christmas cheer.
