  • But me

    My parents were coming up this weekend to get our tree with us, I am driving a 1968 VW beetle and it is going to be hard to tie a tree to the top of it so they always come up and take us to get our tree. Well thursday I found out they were bringing my nephew and sister (that is a whole thread in its self) but I told them I can't handle the stress of my nephew and sister coming and if that were the case not to come, well they decided not to come so now we are trying to find somewhere close to get a tree and no one has the bailer thingy so we can put it on the top of my car. So do you have your tree up?? Sorry maybe this should have went' on the vent board

  • I bet they could tie a small tree to your bug! Just look for a 6' or less one! (And try not to drive too far!)

    Good luck & sorry the weekend didn't go as planned!

    We've had ours up for a bit over a week I guess.

  • Well we just came in from cutting one out of the yard DH says even charlie brown would be embaressed by it but it is better then a fake tree (no offence but it just didn't feel like christmas the one year we had a fake tree) Now to cut the top off and make it short enought to fit in the house the tip is probably 2 + foot tall but dosn't really have much green on it
    So we will just be using the middle of the tree.

  • Jenny - Sorry your plans did not work out. I am sure your cut tree will be great!

    I am a firm believer in real trees myself and have NEVER had a fake one in my 31 years! We got ours and put it up at the end of November!

  • I couldn't possibly handle a fake tree either.
    #1 - it's environmentally terrible to have a fake tree!
    #2 - no smell
    #3 - they look terrible compared to the real thing!

    I bet you they could have tied a tree (bailed or not) to the top of your bug if you had any sort of a luggage rack at all up there. (some bugs do).
