You know, in theory I support the idea of being ecologically responsible, and cutting down a live tree for a month-long display probably doesn’t comport with that theory. The fake tree is probably the sensible way to go.
But I have to say, I hate this newfangled tree too. I don’t care about a fancy light display, just lights that work are fine with me.
Now I’ve got to go yell at the neighborhood kids to get off my lawn.
