Christmas is in 6 Months

These artificial trees are 'for sale' at a thrift store. Prices range from about $15 to $25. Also, if you even think you're going to be invited to an ugly Christmas sweater party, now is the time to scoop up a sweater. I found one yesterday for 94 cents. Now, I'm just waiting for my party invitation.
