A few years later, while attending boarding school in Michigan, I visited my roommate’s family who lived on an actual Christmas tree farm in the Official Washington Rednecks shirt Also,I will get this Upper Peninsula. On the bus ride north, I feared I’d been missing out on something special, that the minty-fresh smell of natural trees would overwhelm my senses and the softness and pliability of their pine needles would make our fake seem hard and brittle by comparison. I was shocked to discover that I felt nothing. The real thing didn’t move me at all. It was only on the way home that I felt a rush of emotion at the sight of all the poor discarded trees, tossed to the curb mere days after the holiday was over. Without so much as a kind word, our Tannenbaums were booted out the door the moment they started to show any signs of drooping. That’s a bit ageist in my opinion.

The only time I actually bought my own tree was when I was 24 and celebrating the Official Washington Rednecks shirt Also,I will get this holidays with friends in New York, where I was living in youthful squalor. Even then, instead of buying a “real” tree, I stuck with our family tradition and bought a fake. In a misguided effort to make it my own, however, I chose a hideous neon pink eyesore. To be fair, these were dark times for me. I worked three part time jobs: as a nanny, at a feminist sex shop, and at an American Apparel store in Williamsburg, which I quickly realized was just Hooters for hipsters. The pink tree seemed to fit my maladjusted life perfectly. Not only was it small enough to sit on a coffee table in my tiny apartment, but the walls of the sex shop were uncannily painted the same shade of bubble-gum. Along with my job at American Apparel came a sudden, but profound understanding of irony. It turns out, I was supposed to admire “ugly” things, like trucker hats, camel toe, and of course odd little Christmas trees that looked like they had been vomited on by an entire flamboyance of flamingos.
