Why not buy a fake tree instead? It saves a lot of hassle each year.
Heresy. I expect the next thing you will recommend is buying pine scented candles and pretend that is it the tree too, right?

Pine scented candles are delicious. 
Not as a substitute for a real Christmas tree though.
God bless!

Never having eaten either, I'll let you two argue that out.

I overheard a man today, about age 40-45, say to a woman who was also about age 40-45: "Thank you young lady." So, a question for the ladies: would you find this kind of comment patronizing, or would you take it as a compliment or polite remark (as it was probably intended), or would you take it in some other way? Or are there too many variables to give a general answer?

I think it sounds okay.

The light stimulation of the brain and limbic system that results from staring into a computer screen is one of the leading causes of insomnia in America.

Funny how prices in euros and pounds are often the same, with something costing one pound costing one euro. Too bad for the English that one pound is worth a mere €0.78. How sad for the poms. I'd have Cameron's head for this if I were the English.

Mistake: 0,78 euro is worth one pound.

There are three factors involved in the full assessment of the goodness and wholeness of someone: trust, sincerity, and tubularity. A person is rated on these three factors using scales going from 1 to 100. Some sample ratings:

Pope Francis - 271
Ebor - 263
Maximos the Confessor - 256
Bruce Campbell - 200
My friend Edward - 192
GreekIsChristian - 110
My last girlfriend - 104
Hitler - 69
Joel Osteen - 49

My wife just texted me and said that an egg sag of spiders opened in our Christmas tree and now our house is infested with spiders.  I guess this is what I get for introducing pagan, druidistic elements into our celebration of the Holy Nativity of Christ.  :(

Real tree or fake?

I know this is slightly late to the convo, but I prefer fake trees. Less of a fire hazard and why should we cut down hundreds of thousands of trees when they can stay on the ground for our benefit?

So kudos to my fellow fake treers...you are not alone ;)

If we didn't cut down those trees, then there wouldn't be Christmas tree farms. Tree farms are one of the most ecologically friendly agriculture programs available.

Manufacturing plastic trees on the other hand, not so much.

It's only remotely a fire hazard if you're doing it old school:



This isn't something one leaves unattended or does with a very dry tree.

Actually statistics show plenty of Christmas-tree related fires with no candles involved. In some cases, even strings of incandescent bulbs can start the fire. I think this is related to the fact that not so many people know how to keep a tree properly hydrated (and many even buy a tree that's past hydrating). If you want to be super-safe, fire departments recommend unplugging everything at night.

We have always unplugged our lights at night and whenever we are out of the house. It is just a waste of electricity otherwise.

Actually the Dutch have only been at war with Germany once in their entire history. Now the French, Spanish and English, they have really been annoyances at times.

Only once. We were neutral in WWI. At the end of WWI the Belgians did try to steal some of our land, sneaky as they are.

But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
Leviticus 19:34

I'll take 120 "Lord, have mercy"s over 40 repeats of a CCM chorus.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Never trust Belgians.
I didn't know there was a difference between the Dutch and Belgians. I just lump them all together as Germany's parade ground.  ;)

Quite the thing to say to folks who were the largest, wealthiest empire in the world for quite some time. (Also the source of European royal houses, the inventors of capitalism [the kind that works, not the brash London kind that came a little later], and -- well, I'll just stop as I don't want any Dutchmen here to get big heads.)

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

The Dutch have legal marijuana and Belgians have waffles.  Both have bicycles.
