As mentioned just a couple of blogs ago, the Phactors do live cut trees for Christmas decorating. Not everyone has the same tradition, so there are many other trees out there to satisfy all tastes. So is this to your taste? Is this to anyone's taste? Well, it is there and you can hardly miss it, so someone did purchase this tree. And guess what? Under all that petrified cotton candy is a real tree. Sort of hard to identify the species of tree when they've been so throughly flocked. Always thought flocking was to make a tree look like it had snow on it's branches. So what's this Barbie nightmare supposed to represent? Some controversy among the regulars (it's at our coffee shop) whether its red or pink? And then wrapped with toilet paper another questionable decision. Nothing quite says Merry Christmas like a flocked tree.
