They will look much better when fully decorated. That will be in the next two days. Today was just the lights.

The little, artificial tree is decorated but has new ornaments added daily — partly because the 2019 Lego ‘Friends Advent Calendar’ is doing tree ornaments this year.

I will keep you posted.

All 3 Of The Christmas Trees For 2017 Are In Place — Only One Lit So Far.

by Anura Guruge



December 5th — 20-days to go. I think this is par for the course for the last FEW years. It used to be 10 days before Christmas, but as Teischan got older she was more and more insistent that we get the trees early. She put up her tree in her room, a 2016 innovation, on November 27 — 8-days ago.

Way back we used to go and cut the two trees. But, the tree farm we used to visit ran out of trees!

For the last few years we have been going to Walmart in Rochester. It was just convenient, and at $25/tree, economical.

This year, we shopped local, and paid $35/tree — at “Lisa’s Dragonfly Gardens” in Alton. But, I didn’t have to drive for 40 minutes, up steep hills, with two trees roped to the top of the van. We were home within 10-minutes and 99% of the route was FLAT. That alone was worth $10. Yes, one of these days one or both of the trees are going to fall off the roof.

Unlit it does NOT look good. Awkward shape. Very phallic!

Now could it be that the Sri Lankan Buddhists who actually built it are TAKING THE MICKEY.

I am not sure what to think.

Mexico City's tree, at 110 meters -- looks quite decorative.

Mexico City’s tree, at 110 meters — looks quite decorative.

Sure does NOT look right. If anything it is an eyesore in what is a very scenic, seaside setting.

Maybe it has to come down. Soon …

The one in Mexico City, at 110 meters, was conical, and looked quite nice — even during the day. 

Not sure what to say.

I just can’t see something as ugly as this lasting too long in 70% Buddhist Sri Lanka irrespective of who built it.
