    Mike's 2010 Christmas madness thread

    Hello everyone, The crazy Canadian is back !!!!!

    I hope that 2010 has been a good year for you all

    It is once again that time of the year that I look forward to the most. Since we celebrate Thanksgiving in October here in Canada I have taken November 1st to November 8th off as vacation time to start work on the Christmas trees. On the morning of November 1st I will start to assemble the new 12' tree in the living room.
    Since my previous tree took on average of 42 hours to set up every year I am figuring that this tree will take about 60 hours to complete. It is going to be an epic amount of work.


    I am looking forward to the challenge and I hope that I do not fall off the ladder and break any bones.

    More to come in the coming days and lots of pictures too...

    Mike maybe you need to scaffold up instead of a ladder. I'd hate for you to be laid up with broke bones and everyone around you will have their trees up except you. How's that for a little holiday gloom -- I'm just a worry wart.

    I know it will be spectacular. I assume that since you are going to start the tree that you are all moved into your new house?

    Mike, do you have a website where we can watch the progress of your construction as well as seeing previous incarnations of your tree?
    So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
    Hail our dear old friend kris kringle,
    Driving his reindeer across the sky.
    Don't stand underneath when they fly by.
