A Christmas Tree With ‘Tude…. 71º North Latitude, That is…

Today’s called Little Christmas Eve here in Norway, and we holding to the Norwegian tradition, tonight my family and I will be setting up and decorating the Christmas tree.


If I happened to meet a Christmas tree that wanted to grow up in the North Cape of Norway, well, honestly, I’d advise him otherwise.  First, I’d tell him that his kind don’t grow here.  It’s just not natural.  Not trying to be rude, just telling it like it is.

Now if he still insisted on an arctic dwelling, I’d remind him that the growing season is only 50-60 days a year.  Just think how fast and big he could grow if he lived, well, you know, where his kind DO grow.

And if his heart was still set on living where the sun doesn’t shine for 2 months, I’d remind him that the wind might just whip him right out of the ground.   And if that didn’t change his mind, then I guess he might just be a Christmas Tree with enough attitude to handle the latitude.
