I will not buy a fir or pine tree for Christmas unless it is a live one I can plant.
since I am a gypsy traveling between places until I find my place to live I made
my own recycled tree from a dead trees branches, some cinnamon and ginger for
smell and recycled clothing for decoration...when I am finished with it I will take
off the nonburnable decorations and give the "logs" to a neighbor for their fireplace.
