O, Christmas tree...

O, Christmas tree,
O, Christmas tree,
Why aren't there lights on your branches?
O, Christmas tree,
O, Christmas tree,
Why aren't there lights on your branches?
I plugged you in, and turned you on,
Why wont you work? Is something wrong?
O, Christmas tree,
O, Christmas tree,
Why aren't there lights on your branches?

Yeah, I know that's not how the song's meant to go, but I changed the words intensionally for a more fun way to tell you about the fact my Christmas tree died yesterday. Well, actually, the bulb went, but since the kinds of bulbs that fibre optic trees take cost twice as much as the tree cost in the first place, and since I'd been considering replacing the tree anyway, we're getting a new tree. Kelly's going to get one tomorrow.

Anyway...

I did get to watch all of "A Christmas On Chestnut Street" the other day, and it was a pretty good movie. For those who haven't seen it, it's about a department store that orders too many lights by accident, and to cover that up starts up a Christmas light compatition.

I also watched "The Witches" which is a movie based on a Roald Dahl book with the same title about witches that hate children and have a plan to turn all children in to mice, and a boy called "Luke" who teams up with his grandma to stop them. It's a really good movie. Definately not a Christmas movie but I enjoy it, so decided to watch it anyway.

Then, yesterday (Tuesday) I watched another Christmas movie called "Christmas With The Kranks" which was about a man who decides he'd rather go on a cruise than do the usual Christmas celebrations his family have always done. But then his daughter comes for Christmas at the last minute, bringing her fiance who she'd told about all the decorations, etc, her family always have at Christmas. So "Mr Krank" and his wife have to try and get the house decorated and everything before she gets there. I quite enjoyed it.

Haven't really done much else worth talking about, so I'll let this do for now.

Dont you just hate when the replacement for an item costs more than the entire unit to begin with? And people wonder why the landfills are over filling and society considers everything disposable....

Yep, we live in a throw-away society these days.

I hope your new tree is beautiful, Tori.

LadyStyx:
No kidding! I mean, if the price was the other way around people would be more likely to replace the part needed instead of the item.

AliceKay:
I'm sure it will be when I get it working.
