One More Reason to Get a Real Tree

As I am unable to get a tree this year (can't have a tree without a home), I can be comforted that no tree may be better than a fake tree:
In 1930 the U.S.-based Addis Brush Company created the first artificial Christmas tree made from brush bristles. The company used the same machinery that it used to manufacture toilet brushes. The trees were made from the same animal-hair bristles used in the brushes, save they were dyed green.

    Excuses, excuses, excuses ... you have a home, indeed multiple homes, physical and spiritual ... maybe not YOUR HOUSE you can decorate, but then again, you shouldn't let that deter you. Perhaps you wrote this before your efforts resulted in a physical location. I bet some friend makes sure you DO have a tree to decorate this Christmas season.



You are the reason why I do not write privately. I would love to hear your thoughts, whether you agree or not.
