    Wow. They would have had to decorate the top half of that tree while it was lying on the ground…. Looks like everyone got giant presents that year just so the boxes could be seen!

      I have a friend who substituted a pyramid of wrapped presents (empty boxes) for a tree one year, it looked wonderful!
