    The annual ritualized murder of trees has been socialized as "normal" for generations.

    Here, an entire family (including small children) are brought to the "killing fields" and prepare to murder a living, growing Christmas tree. It won't be growing for much longer.

    In this next picture, an entire family (including small children) proudly parades the freshly murdered and dying Christmas tree through the streets of their village. It bleeds sap from it's mortal wound.

    Next, we see a jock smiling with the trophy of Christmas tree "homicide" foisted upon his shoulder. They use the word "Harvest" to describe the systematic execution of these living, growing species which breathe in carbon dioxide, and exhale oxygen.

    Here, one is burned in efigy under the guise of "holiday safety training".

    After a month of being kept in a 1/2 living, 1/2 dying state, tortured with the weight of "decorations" upon its' limbs, here is the fate which many of the dead await. Mutilation of the body beyond any recognition.

    LOL ... OMG ... Stop icon_lol.gif .... as an FYI pine is not the best wood for building anything. It is very light and soft. Most Christmas trees come from tree farms and the ones the people go into the mountains to cut down help thin out the growth, which helps prevent forest fires. Personally, I think it is insane to pay the prices that they are asking for them ($60 to $200,) you are better off with an artificial tree that you can pop open every year and a pine scented air freshener. As they dry, they make a huge mess, you can bring bugs into the house and they are a fire hazard. I'm pretty sure that just about every year there is more than one house that burns down and family members that get killed because of the Christmas tree fires.

    My family has been re-using the same plastic tree for over 15 years.

    I think normal tree's are too messy, but I don't mind them. There could be some special memories here.

    Seriously though ... Dude .... It's just a tree ....

    However, after the move one gets acclimated and becomes a part of the new environment.

    These poor Christmas trees that you write about would not be here if we did not want Christmas trees, as they are grown only for the purpose of being harvested as Christmas tree. And, if properly disposed of, they reduce global warming, by having absorbed all the carbon dioxide that went into making their wood. I haven't had a Christmas tree in years, but that is only because my partner doesn't like the mess they make in the house. oh I however, really enjoy the smell of the pines boughs inside the house . The use of the pine tree also brings me to think about my ancestors, who must have been in some Germanic tribe In Northern Europe, celebrating in some way the coming of spring, using the everlasting evergreen tree.

    My family gets a live tree from up in Connecticut every year from a tree farm. That tree lives until February. It would live longer if we didn't have to get rid of it when Christmas has been over for two months. Never dries out since my ma feeds it better then us.

    If that upsets someone....I really don't care. icon_razz.gif

    I thought it was humor, adding some emoticons probably would have made my sarcasm a little more obvious. I don't see what my rear end has to do with it, but surprisingly my behind is still intact. icon_lol.gif But I've never been good as internet sarcasm. icon_neutral.gif

    Before clean air became all the rage, when I was growing up our town held annual xmas tree burnings in the park after the holiday. We had a population of about 10,000 so that was a huge bonfire. Then the town served hot cocoa and snacks. I still remember when our town stopped the tradition but I see online others still burn'm...

    My tree has taken offense to the term "fake."

    Just because it was created by a different kind of love than the normal pollenization process doesn't mean it is less festive than the other trees.

    Putting live trees in your house at Christmastime is small shit. My family captures a couple of dwarfs and makes them run around our house in elf costumes for the entire month of December. I won't even mention that homeless man with the scraggly beard we dress in a red suit and stuff in the chimney.

    Well, now that's just called southern hospitality. I mean if you can't be charitable to those less fortunate by inviting them into your home during the holidays, when can you?

    we collect them all down here and they're piled in cages out in the wetlands to help prevent erosion.

    Well I understand what you are saying and I've been a little sensitive about this for years. A point to remember is, many of these trees are grown specifically as Christmas trees. Most aren't growing naturally out in some forest, but on a Christmas tree farm with their destination from the time they are seedlings is already planned.

    That said, the last time we had a living tree in the house was when I was 13.
    I think it is a waste to raise a beautiful tree, chop it down so it can be used for 2 or 3 weeks, then discarded, mulched or burned.
