    So I leave town for a few weeks and come to find out my street is the "wonderland drive" of christmas light viewing.

    all the neighborhood has asked me when I am going to decorate, I reply....."never!"

    Every time I go hunting coyotes and checking my traps and boxes I see tons of idiots cutting christmas trees and getting stuck in the middle of the roads and being where they shouldnt be. I get asked, where are you going to cut your tree?, I reply...."I'm not!"

    I get asked by customers picking up pieces from the woodshop "where/what are you going/doing for the holidays?, I reply "nothing/nowhere!"

    I think I have turned into scrooge....and I am ok with it

    I like living in scrooge land. The locals sell xmas trees to the flatlanders for $40-50 a pop. At night you won't see one single set of xmas lights on any of the houses , we prefer to see the stars in the night sky [no streetlights up here either]

    Christmas is as good a reason to party and buy stupid sh*t as any. We dont do a tree or decorate or anything, but we do get good and drunk.

    I never did get the attraction of cutting down a tree and watching it die in your living room

    the only thing I dig about the holidays is the deals on tools at lowes and home depot and the snowmobile trails are usually empty around the holidays.
