Christmas tree

Reading, Pennsylvania is one of the poorest towns in the nation.  So when it was time to erect their town Christmas tree, they chose one from a local ball field.  It was lopsided and the city was criticized for it.  But instead of playing into the guilt, they instead placed one red bulb on the tree just like the one in a Charlie Brown cartoon.  They were then praised for embracing the true spirit of Christmas.  This year they're not taking any chances.  They will be using a fake tree in the town square which will last about 20 years.  I like the idea of the lopsided tree with one red bulb better.  Christmas spirit
