3. We use a fake.

My husband is allergic to pine trees, believe it or not. Breaks out in hives and can't breathe. We have had that fake tree for 14 years. I will keep it going until it literally falls apart.

4. The majority of Christmas trees are harvested SOLEY for

that purpose.

In fact, if you mulch one up (or live a city that picks them up and mulches them), you're actually performing a net zero deed. The mulch is used to grow more plants and prevent erosion.

5. I live where farmland is diverted into producing Xmas trees.

They use a lot of chemicals and energy too, and are transported across the continent with high-cost fuels. It is an economic waste, investing in a disposable product, but it is part of the local economy and makes people rich compared to growing food.

2. Where is Bill O'Reilly (R)? He's AWOL. Again.

O'Reilly like to claim he will be "All In" when it comes to the War on Christmas.

Now that hoSteSSilities are starting up again, he is AWOL. How typical for a Republican.
