I am fortunate enough to live in a house that backs up to woods. This means no concerns about privacy, no traffic noise and no accidental sightings of neighbors in their undergarments.
And it also means I have an easy place to dispose of the Christmas tree each year.
Since 2007, I've tossed my old Christmas tree out back, right on top of the previous year's decaying carcass. So now there are five trees there, all in varying states of decomposition.
Call it the Christmas Tree Graveyard.
There's a legend (which I just now invented) that if you stand in the graveyard long enough, the Spirit of Christmas will rise up and grant you extra gifts. Or maybe the Spirit of Christmas is providing extra nourishment for the soil, and we'll see magical things grow there someday.
I do know there is a stream that runs right by the graveyard, so hopefully some Christmas Spirit will flow to your house!
