Dear deer!! by sarahhorsfall

Dear deer!!

I don't usually bother with a christmas tree - so had no idea how much a real tree costs. I stopped outside my local hardware shop to take a photo of their trees, and this reindeer, and was stunned to see the price tags. £60 for a 6 foot tree!!!! Even the smallest ones were £35 .. jingle tills, jingle tills, jingle all the way .. I was reminded of this song by the fabulous Tom Lehrer - written back in the 50s .. plus ca change, etc ..

£60 for a christmas tree? Bah, humbug!! I shall stick to stringing up a bit of tinsel around the flat, as usual :o)
The commercialization of Christmas has led to my humbug attitude as well! It is definitely not my favorite holiday of the year!
