Because this is the year for an 'unusual' Christmas tree....2020, right?

 


I know I said I wouldn't be back around until the end of the month, but this just made me laugh.  'Be of good cheer' - you might wake up and when you turn on the lights for your Christmas tree....this happens.  Ha!  What an appropriate tree for 2020!  Unusual and not quite right....LOL!  Of course, it's a prelighted tree and so it's not as simple as buying a new strand and replacing it.  I think we'll keep it just like this.  And it looks like we'll be watching for the after-holiday sales for a new tree.

Perhaps I'll look for other ways to make you smile this month.  I'll see what I can find and share.  Have a good day!

    1. I thought about getting a COVID ornament, but I don't think so. My husband put this creepy-eyed snowman that we have on top earlier today. I think that snowman is going to go out the door after this season just like the tree. LOL

  2. Hahaha! Ours looked like that this year, too. I just added a new strand to the top and we were good to go. :)

    1. Yes, thought about that, but why not just have a 'flawed' tree. This year has certainly been flawed. Ha!

  3. That happened to us this year! I did the same as Les and plugged a strand in. Thanks for sharing, Kay!

    1. As I said to Diane, my husband put this creepy-eyed snowman on top this morning. Think the snowman will go out the door at the end of the season as well. And since no one will see the tree but us...it's all good. LOL

  4. That is the tree for 2020! ;D

  5. I hate when that happens! Even worse, in my opinion, is plugging in a new pre-lit tree which has lights that look like a shopping mall rather than the “soft white” erroneously described on the box.

    1. Yes, I agree. Not sure what we might look for in a future tree. We'll think about it.

    2. I hope you know I wasn’t criticizing YOUR tree, only mine.❤️

  6. Ha! This tree definitely got the 2020 memo!

  7. I see what happened: the beginning of the tree is dark like 2020 has been but it's followed by the light, so good times are in our future. How'd you like that analysis of the problem, lol!

    1. OK, Rita, you win the prize for best analysis of the tree. I love those thoughts!! Thanks!

  8. It's a nice tree though. I like the narrow shape of it. I would just toss a strand on there and call it good. I heard he funniest thing the other day. People all over are putting their trees up but not into it this year so they just put lights on the front of the tree. Haha. Easier to place and remove, I suppose.

    1. Yes, we have a perfect corner for it and put it in the same place every year. Lights just on the front - ha! Guess it saves effort.

  11. It does fit in with 2020. LOL This happened to our pre-lit tree a couple of years ago, and we've since replaced it. This time around we got a tree without the lights attached so we wouldn't have to replace the entire tree next time. It was a good idea at the time, right? Those pre-lit trees are very convenient!

    1. Yes, the pre-lit trees are indeed convenient and I suspect that when we replace this one, it will be with another pre-lit. My husband is much happier not having to put the lights on tree each year. LOL

  12. Oh that's perfect for this year! We had that happen to our pre-lit tree and ended up buying a strand of white lights and wrapping the top and you couldn't tell and now all the lights are out and we have to string the whole tree. I am never buying a pre-lit tree again!

    1. Katherine, I say that the risk of a pre-lit is worth not having my husband get so frustrated with putting lights on year after year. A trade-off - LOL!

  13. Same thing happened with my big Christmas wreath this year! Darn 2020. We had to string it with lights, which don't look as good as the original ones. Oh well. I love that you're just leaving yours - in your face, 2020!

    1. I think the 'in your face' thing is just about perfect for this year. LOL

  14. Aww I think that your tree looks great regardless. Our tree stopped lighting up as well and we just ended up stringing on our own lights so I don't feel like you can even tell.

    1. It's an odd tree, but I'm coming to like the symbolism for 2020. LOL

  15. I still haven't put up our fake Christmas tree. This year certainly has that different feel but we all have to do the best we can, right? Hope you've a great week, Kay!

  16. Christmas tree lights are not easy! It took me forever to put ours on the tree ... and they still don't fill all the areas. Just go with it!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I say anything goes for this year so very appropriate! :)
    We did not get our tree up after all although ours is a mini tree. I'm thinking of getting a nice tree for next year too! We may find some good sales.
