Hi everyone! I posted this story on another "old folks" thread and no one seemed to even know what I was talking about so I thought I would try again since it is about the season and just might kick up a fun conversation. Here goes. Anyone remember those awful Christmas trees of the 60's? My mom had to have every one and I HATED them! First came the aluminum ones that you couldn't put lights on so you had to shine a floodlight on it and of course you had to have the thing with rotating 3 colored cellophane disks so it changed color like a stoplight. The thing looked to me like a giant tv antenna gone berserk! Next came the real trees that had been "flocked". Remember those? They had been sprayed so heavily with some sort of foam you could barely tell there was a tree under there! When you tried to decorate one the foam would either fall off or stick to everything. Oh, and of course, my oh so traditional mother just HAD to have a pink one! Nothing said Christmas like this thing that looked like a huge lump of cotton candy standing in the corner smelling like a vinyl car seat! Ok, who's next?
