Treemendous

“Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.” – Larry Wilde

For a handful of years, three generations of our family has been travelling to Frosty’s Christmas Tree Farm in Langley to peruse and select perfect specimens. The vital effort is now complete; excitement of the little people begins to mount. Except for the 1-year old; she’s just watching, and wondering.

“There’s nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child.” – Erma Bombeck

  1. My little Granddaughter wants a, biiiiig x-mas tree that, goes right up to the ceiling, as her little friend has. Last year she was excited Santa ate his cookies and milk. She was beside herself with glee when? Her dad took her up the ladder to see if Santa's reindeer ate the hay, her dad had put on the roof for them. She was somewhat worried because, Rudolph is the first reindeer and maybe had ate all the hay. However we assured her, Santa's reindeer always share with each other. She has already been after her Dad, to put hay on the roof for the reindeer. She and her Mother are baking cookies for Santa this week. She is my x-mas joy.

  2. So what's the complaint now Norm? The trees are not environmentally friendly? The cost? The after cost profits not being donated to your favourite charity? No good Christmas trees on the North Shore?

  3. oh I remember that “watching and wondering” phase with my little ones. They always liked to suss things out first.

    Love your blog Norm. Had a really good laugh about the BC Ferries “numbers”.

  4. That's not what I meant at all. I have great respect for Norm's perspective and analysis, he adds a lot of depth in a sea of superficial MSM “news”.

    I think the type of comments you made (and also anonymous on Dec 9 at 1:11 pm) are disrespectful, troll-ish and should be banned as the Naked Capitalist does on her website.
