You really ain't alone. For me, it's either one of two ways.
1 > We are too lazy to put up a tree. We just walk to eachother and go, "Merry Christmas, douchebag." and give them whatever item we found somewhere in the garage.
2 > We somehow get possessed enough to put up a half-assed tree and it is so festive that it stays up until midway through July. Ever celebrated the 4th with a tree still out?
Happy holidays, douche. Here's half a bicycle wheel.
(EDIT: This year is the former. No tree at all. Good thing to, because whatever comes up must come down, and disassembling a tree is even more of a nuisance than setting it up. That, and the dogs get hair all over it.)
After my post, I felt almost self-conscious about not having a Christmas spirit, so I put some washi tape on a Tapitio hot sauce bottle. I would submit a picture of it if I can find where the upload picture button is.
Pretty festive, if I do say so myself. Best thing is, at the rate I use hot sauce, it won't be up until half past June.
Thanks for the kind words! I tried editing it so that the edges are foggy like in standard Christmas photos, but it turns out that photo editing is not one of my stronger skills.
My family's two parols, Filipino tradition during Christmas.
They also got some sort of fancy snow globe that shoots air so the snow globe just keeps "snowing".
This photo gives me vertigo, I don't know why.
Real festive year.
I am too busy staring at all my festive decorations and eating my delicious food to bother with Imgur.
Unpopular opinion: setting up the nativity scene is more fun than setting up the tree (and our tree is small and scrappy).
Ew, people actually set up actual decorations on Christmas like decent human beings? Makes me sick to the core.
Also, I bear the sad news that my festive hot sauce bottle is nearly empty.
Well, Merry Christmas folks. I'll probably get started on the ham (because believe me, even if one skimps out on the decor, NOBODY skimps out on making the ham.)
We put up a really cool Christmas tree with a bunch of lights, decorations and such. I got a picture of it, but when I forced some humans to look at it, they weren't helpful enough about the quality. If it's not good enough, then that's the fault of those humans, and I will gladly make sure they won't be able to fail ever again.
Edit: It ain't working. Lesson learned, you can't use Dropbox for these things, I should just get an Imgar account or something. Please wait, thanks!
I just copied and pasted my hot sauce bottle onto my post.
It may result in a lower quality though, so keep that in mind. Looking forward to seeing the tree (though let's face it - it is not going to be as good as my festive Tapitio).
Well, you're already locked, so I'll reply here. You should be able to use a Dropbox link in an img tag if you change "www.dropbox.com" to "dl.dropboxusercontent.com"
You're amazing! It works now, thank you so much! Enjoy the best tree ever, guys.
Why the hell is the photo so large?! I had to zoom out to 50% to see the whole thing!
Also, is it just the lighting, or is the entire tree secreting a florescent glow?
Just add this attribute to the img tag: style="max-width: 100%;"
It looks as if it might be a white-colored artificial tree, and the green lights reflecting off that give it the glowy effect.
Alien trees can also be beautiful.
