Merry christmas to us! We had just bought our tree on the 11th, and 2 days later our tree is completely DEAD!!!!! We spent $70 on a tree that looks like we kept it a month after christmas and $30 on a tree stand that leaked all over our brand new woods floors! Happy first christmas to us in our first home! Perhaps if Gales didn't get their trees in 2 weeks BEFORE Thanksgiving, our tree would have survived more than 48 hours!!!
