Would you display a Christmas tree that is as sorry looking as this one?
One company certainly isn't embarrassed to. Believe it or not this particular Christmas tree is in the front lobby of a major corporation. This company makes millions and millions of dollars yearly, and this is the very best that they could do to celebrate Christmas. In my book they all ought to be ashamed of themselves sitting up in the front offices. They would have been much better off not putting any tree up at all, than an old dusty artificial tree with only a strand of lights working on the top & bottom of the tree. It shouldn't take a rocket scientist to locate a burned out bulb!
Not just no, but hell no. And I agree with you-- that forlorn, sorry tree should never be displayed, and most certainly not in the lobby of an affluent business. Maybe the owners have black hearts. Maybe they hate Santa. Maybe they're just your everyday need-to-get-a-clue-Yahoos!
Take that tree out and throw it in the dumpster and then go give a C-note to someone less fortunate. The horror!
LOL!!! thats just too funny. i would rather put up one of those charlie brown christmas trees.
if it is a well-known company, it should do better than this. I had seen shopping centres display very tall christmas tree with awesome lightings and ornaments. Brings lots of customers to drop by shopping and taking photos. Lots of benefits to display a beautiful tree
Possum lover...I guess in this day and age, with the past few years of on again off again holidays... employees can't say Merry Christmas...ditch the Santas' and the Nativity in many cities..no celebration of festivities...many public schools are not participating in the recognition of the " Winter's Solstice "...and ALL companies are watching the bottom line.. I mean IF they spent it on a fabulous TREE...nobody would get a holiday bonus...NOT that they were going to anyway..However.. now because of this poor rep of a tree, they have an excuse next year ...so it won't reappear....See they used reverse psychology..
Just my thoughts....thanks for the share...and have a Happy Holiday regardless.

Has anyone ever had problems having a Christmas tree and a puppy?My puppy (Ruby) is now 14 months old (the sweetest girl in the world) but I am pretty sure the ornaments on a Christmas tree, the lights, and actually the tree itself, may be too much of a temptation for her. I have no idea what to do.

What is the justification for Christians to have Christmas trees in their home and church?The Christmas tree was birthed in pagan idolatry. The Bible says God will not accept worship when people take a pagan custom or manner of worship and try to honor Christ with it.
