    You just like it because it's 18 inches.

    Out of respect for Charlie Brown and Snoopy, please delete that pervy comment.

    I may too. It makes you appreciate the little things in life, as was intended.

    I got one last year for myself...I like it because it reminds me that I'd rather have simple things, like my friends and a home-cooked meal over something that I don't need/want.

    TheGuyNextDoor saidI was an enormous Peanuts/Charlie Brown fan as a kid. I knew I was different somehow and always related to Charlie.
    I think I'll pick up one of those this year and find a special place to display it since it's meaning is so profound...icon_wink.gif
    Thanks Vic for posting it ; )



    Was it becuz Charlie was well hung?icon_razz.gif

    Hym...seems like a lot to pay for a twig.

    I bet CVS will sell it for less. icon_twisted.gif

    Adrien... It's $9.99! How much cheaper are ya gonna find it?
    I've bought little sad trees over the years that were left over at Homo Depot or Lowes because no body wanted them and brought them home and decorated them so they could have their time to shine instead of being tossed away for not being pretty. My little homage to Charlie Brown for years and years. That kind of thinking comes from your heart and never your wallet.
    Just sayin'


    Marry me. Every time I see a houseplant or something that's been treated badly at a store, I want to buy that one and fix it. Even non-living things that may never get sold due to damage.

    I say "I think I'll take this one.........but it's chipped, can I have a discount?"

    I bought one last year and put it out on my patio table. I know it is a little bit early, but I put it out already this year. I love it.

    My sister has one and the poor thing broke in half. Now it's held together with duct tape. That's one sad looking tree.

    ps - notice Snoopy at the top of the box laughing presumably at the tree.

    Oh yeah, the film "What Would Jesus Buy?" referenced here is an absolutely wonderful film. Everyone should see it. Funny but truthful too.

    It's just the opposite. The shopping is fine. It's the bogus Jesus crap that's fake.

    And I never could sit thru those boring Charlie Brown Specials. They are crap, too.

    I was a huge fan as a kid and never missed any of the holiday specials.
    Even have the "Peanuts theme" (Schroeder's theme, I think is how its billed).
    I just had to laugh when I saw this... I'm sure they will sell a ton.
