Let’s start with a wee story. I, like every Sunday night, walked into the Whole Foods store in Lansdowne for my evening Kombucha. Immediately I saw her. The tiniest Christmas tree of all. It reminded me of a Charlie Brown tree. About half the size of a regular one and ONLY $30.00. I thought to myself, why would ANYONE go through the trouble of buying a full-size Christmas tree, and lugging it home only to tear it down in a couple weeks. I vowed to myself that every year I get a Christmas tree, I would go for the far superior half-Christmas tree.
After some light googling it dawned on me that the half-Christmas tree isn’t a new idea. In fact, A LOT of people are actually opting for a smaller tree. This makes total sense to me, especially if you have a dog or a kid, or you’re just stupid clumsy and something GNARLY can happen in a split-second.
I continued my search about Christmas trees, and let me tell you; it did not disappoint. What did I see? PINK Christmas Trees, RED Christmas Trees, Christmas trees of every colour. And then I saw the mother-lode of all Christmas trees. The Black Christmas tree. Now, I felt something different when I saw this one. It felt like I was home. I could picture myself, Chai Tea Latte in hand, posing for the perfect Christmas Insta Pic in front of this tree.
I mean, think about it. You walk into a BOUJEE apartment, and you see a black Christmas Tree, with Gold and Silver Accents.
I will leave you with one thing: Walmart is selling the Black Christmas Tree for $46.19.
