Tell me this isn’t insane. We chopped this down fresh, we watered it right away and consistently, and this is the state of our tree this morning on Christmas Eve. It started drying out after only about a week. We’ve had it since December 4th.
Here’s what I swept up this morning:
And just so you can see the depth of how much it was (and this was only about half as I had to use the vacuum on the rest):
Crazy, right? It’s almost enough to make me want to go artificial next year. We’re taking it down Christmas night after the kids go to bed, which makes me sad but I know we don’t have a choice as this thing is clearly a fire hazard. (Do not freak out Mom! It will not catch fire, we are being careful!)
All I can guess is that must have been diseased. It’s the only explanation for this needle shedding insanity. But bah humbug! Having a crappy tree for the season sure is a buzz kill.
