Is your tree up yet?
Ours isn't but all I have to do is bring two
boxes in from the garage and quickly assemble a
7-foot tall artificial tree with 1000 lights and
sixteen microprocessor-controlled patterns.
The lights were already installed, and it only
cost twice as much as a pain-in-the-ass "Live"
tree that drops needles, needs watering, and is
a major fire hazard.
But in the interest of equal time for opposing views,
here's a plug for those forward-thinking tree
merchants who have embraced the most hightech
advertising available: The blimp-shaped balloon.
