My wife and I watch Hallmark channel holiday movies and many have similar elements. One is a snow-ball fight, making and eating cookies and another is buying or retrieving a live Christmas tree.  

I have an issue with the live Christmas trees in these movies.  Not everyone uses live trees – some like ourselves have artificial ones.  I hope future Hallmark movies show artificial trees as well as live ones in peoples homes and in businesses.

This last two pictures are our new artificial tree.  It’s our second one and the previous one was harder to assemble.  My wife usually set up the tree and trimmed it but this year I got a little more involved.
