This year is no exception, except for one thing. This past Christmas, we went down to Puerto Rico for the holidays. Having just gotten rid of 2007-2008 season tree right before Thanksgiving, I figured it made no sense to acquire a tree since we would not be home. So, we have no pictures of the 2008-2009 tree, because there wasn't one.
However, here is a picture of the 2006-2007 tree standing in our backyard. Yeah, that year we just planted it in the back as a solution to keep the HOA letters from filling our mailbox. It is no longer green, or even orange. Its youthful colors are a thing of the past as are its branches. BUT, it stands beautifully in testament to our first ever Christmas Tree in our house:
Usually, I also have to make some statement about how, even though this is a post done on April Fool's it is not an actual April Fool's joke. But, this is neither my house nor my tree. Both our defunct trees Rest In Pieces (yes, I meant Piece not Peace) somewhere in a dumpster after being manually shredded to bits sometime in April or November.
All that said, the following related posts from our blog's past are not jokes:

2007-2008 Tree featured in 2008's (NOT) April Fool's post
2006-2007 Tree feautred in 2007's (NOT) April Fool's post
Incidentally also NOT an April Fool's joke is that we have lost the pictures of the 2006-2007 tree in Jamil's hard drive crash.
