Chrstimas EMERGENCY

12/16/2009 09:30:00 AM
BOTH sets of lights on both of my mini Christmas trees are mysteriously BURNT OUT. (I blame Mexico.)

I'm not kidding. (I cried a little yesterday.)

Why did I cry? All the other pre-lit white Christmas trees are SOLD OUT and I'm fearful that I'm going to have to put a string of GREEN lights on my WHITE tree and IT'S REALLY HARD TO MAKE IT SEEM LIKE CHRISTMAS WHEN IT'S 81 DEGREES OUT.

Gasp!

AND, I will have to UN-DECORATE my ALREADY DECORATED TREES so that I CAN RE-LIGHT THEM thus frustrating the whole Christmas tree-decorating experience.

AHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

(I hope you understand the gravity of the situation. I attempted to use ALL-CAPS to really hit my message home.)

Now, I understand that Jesus is the reason for the season, but I feel that even Jesus thought my trees were pretty when they were lit, as opposed to just sadly sitting there all dim and stuff.

Stay tuned.
I hope to have a positive outcome soon.

  1. if this white tree is an annual thing, I'm HAPPY to send you the box of white-string clear lights I accidently bought at Target in the mad rush to get the white lights before all the other crazies. EVERYWHERE in Chicago is sold out of lights

  3. I've always wondered if it's hard to get into the spirit when it's hot as all hades outside.

  4. Ugh! Bummer! I blame Mexico too. Maybe Christmas lights aren't cut out for that warm weather!

  5. I laughed and then nodded at the idea that Jesus approved of your tree. I firmly believe that He did. :)

    Trying to think of alternative lighting sources for you. Too bad candles are such a fire hazard. Boo. Maybe you could tie fireflies to your tree by their legs? That doesn't sound cruel and unusual...

  6. COUSIN - yes! Please hang on to that box of white string clear lights for me! Shirley's looking for some for me right now and hopefully can bring some down. If not, I may need you to send 'em.

    :)
