I'm at home for my brother's (19th!!!)birthday. As I was hidden in my room trying to make my (incredibly creative) Christmas cards, which only a very few people are getting since they're such a bitch to make, Earl came home with a tree. They bought a live tree with a huge ball of dirt so they can plant it after Christmas instead of throwing it out!
I'm so proud of my family for being so environmentally savvy.
If you haven't bought a tree yet, get a live one! The increased price is worth it since it serves a double purpose.
