    Deck the halls with boughs of holly!
    “Tis the season to be jolly!

    So I ponder this – does posting these photos every year on Popville encourage those daring brave, jolly, souls to tempt fate and try for the record each year?

    • Expat

      I would in a heartbeat, if I actually had the budget to decorate for Christmas!

  • Given that the area around there is a bit more heavily tree lined I would go out on a limb and guess that the tree pictured wasn’t actually a “Christmas tree”, but rather just a random conifer that had died and / or been cut down from someone’s yard. If it were actually around since December the brown needles would have fallen long ago.

      Or maybe even fallen victim to the construction seen in the background?

      • At maximum a tree will retain its needles for up to 40 days. So if you see one out on the curb and its still got needles on it after March then chances are it wasn’t really a “Christmas” tree.

      Plus the fact that there are other limbs in that waste can – definitely looks like someone was either doing yard work or that it was coming from construction.

    I believe we can make it until Christmas! I believe in the residents and trash collectors of this city to deliver unto us a Christmas miracle!

    Maybe leftover from a Christmas in July celebration?
