A Kind Holiday: The Living Christmas Company
I love christmas, but there are two reasons I shouldn’t…
1. My birthday is on Christmas.
2. While we are busy raging against the machine we might as well rage against Christmas as well and this force to get people to buy things. I am one of those people who doesn’t believe in the consumer hype and the holiday season can get a little out of control. There are so many kids who get tons of gifts every year and are still unhappy and unsatisfied. It’s just not right.
With all of that said, I can’t help but love Christmas. I love the songs, the excitement it brings, the changing seasons, the parties, and we can’t forget the tree!
I have considered getting a tree many years, but I knew there was no way in hell my wife was gonna go for cutting down a tree to decorate the house for a single month and then leave it ouside on the curb. That is not the girl I married and I love that about her.
The other day we were watching one of our favorite shows “Shark Tank” and Mark Cuban (our favorite) decided to invest is one contender’s business idea about bringing living trees to your house for the holidays. While The Living Christmas Company currently only bring trees to homes in California, it works by you first picking the size and kind of tree you want (we picked a 6 ft. Blue Spruce) and then after the holidays, they come pick it back up and replant it. Very cool!
I secretly want Bear and me to work there one year, delivering trees to people. Can you imagine seeing how excited people get when their Christmas tree arrives? I know I was!
Here are some more alternative options for renting, adopting or decorating a tree in your own yard!
