    When our son went into a coma with West Nile Virus, I told Patsy, “We never expected to have him this long.”

    Yet we still do.

    The joy of a quick course of physics about heat, inflammable things, and HIGHLY inflammable things.

    Nothing like a chimney fire to get the blood flowing

    You’re getting rid of the tree already? It’s not even New Year’s yet!

    We had one live tree growing up that is when we learned that my brother was highly allergic to cedar. After that artificial trees. So much easier to deal with and can be used year after year.

    Build a burn pit outside. All the fun, especially at night, when there’s no wind! A great lesson for kids about fire safety around the tree.

    While it might be fun to watch that tree burn, where I live, we recycle those trees. It is turned into mulch, or put into the compost pile. Then we get to pick up that mulch or compost to use in out gardens and flower beds.

    Yep. Time to get rid of the decomposing tree corpse you’ve decorated for Christmas.

    We burn our tree in our fireplace and have done so every year for the past 30 years. Strip the ornaments off New Years Day, cut off the limbs, chuck them in, enjoy the whoosh. Never had a chimney fire. The trunk is saved and used as the yule log to start the fire the following Christmas.

    Unless you have bad electrical wiring, or use ancient tree lights with frayed or otherwise damaged cords, or put your tree near a fireplace you’re using, there should be very little fire risk from a real Christmas tree. Especially since these days, the LED lights draw little power and generate very little heat, at least not with small Christmas decorative LED’s. I assume most people have switched over to LED’s by now— they’re pretty cheap now, pay for themselves quickly with power savings, are brighter, and last longer than the old filament bulbs.
