    What the Hell kind of wussies have Americans become? Now we have 'Christmas Tree Syndrome?' Allergies, mold, sickness all from a Christmas Tree according to Stephanie Stahl of CBS. How insane is this? Christmas has been under attack but this......This is friggin crazy.

    "But the branches and trunk can often hold onto another microscopic problem.


    “What they’re allergic to is the mold that settles on the tree during its growing time and arguably sometimes when it’s waiting to be sold here on the lot,” said Jimmy Coan, who’s a Christmas tree farmer.


    One study found the mold count from a live Christmas tree rose to five times the normal level two weeks after the tree was brought indoors."

    Or maybe a paper 'Kim' tree. But getting back to the subject of the thread. This seems like another attack on Christmas.

    Yesterday I went out on the South 40 and cut down a Christmas tree. We hauled it back to the house and put it up. So far, everyone has survived.
