Many folks don't have the space to display a traditional christmas tree. But, that doesn't mean that a wonderful 'tree' can't be enjoyed. Check out these non-traditional trees made by some extremely creative folks.
If you are really under the gun, say you are having a party and somehow the whole christmas tree thing got over looked....then here is the perfect solution. Stick your kids in the corner, light them up, hand them some ornaments and threaten that if they move, santa ain't a coming.
Don't act like you haven't done this at least once.
Although, Buddy is a lot better at this than the kids.
