This classic Norman Rockwell painting captures all the different comical problems of putting up the Christmas tree.
Now, imagine doing this 90 TIMES.....
In Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, a couple has taken their Christmas decorations to the extreme by filling their home with 90 trees, decorated with thousands of ornaments.
Vince Jackman and his partner, Tom Kereluk, started collecting artificial trees about 13 years ago, giving each tree a different theme. And then, continued to add trees, a few each year. They’ve got trees with ornaments from their vacation destinations, including Venice, Ukraine and Las Vegas. There’s also a poinsettia tree, a Star Wars tree and one covered in hand-blown glass ornaments.
Their home now has trees in every room, including the bathrooms -- and they’ve opened their home to visitors. Friends and neighbors who stop by are encouraged to donate money, which is then handed over to local animal shelters.
This year, they’ve already raised about $5,000, with more to come, thanks to their extreme holiday spirit.
