Can't find the Christmas Tree!

United States
November 30, 2017 4:26pm CST
My fiancé has some time so we went to go get our Christmas Tree out of the shed in the backyard and it's not there. *Silence* Well where's the tree? He recalls that we may have brought it to my parents' house, but I don't think so neither does my mom. I think when his parents' were in town, they may have donated it with their other stuff when they were cleaning the shed. We called them and they told us, they don't remember and we could buy a small tree instead.. The tree was practically brand new, only been used once! I have all these new ornaments that I bought last year, too. I'm overly annoyed right now. Have you put up your Christmas tree yet?

Oh no! That's the kind of thing that happened to my husband's stuff when he left it in his parent's garage . . . things would just disappear . Well, I guess now you get to have fun picking out another tree and more ornaments! Our artificial tree is in the garage . . . with all the holiday stuff and I know I saw the box when taking out the autumn stuff - but it probably won't go up for another week or so.

But I don't want to spend the money on a new tree, lol. Not yet, the prices are still steep lol. :) I put up my mini Christmas tree today though, that'll do for now. We told his parents' to check before donating but argh!

@infatuatedbby Hopefully a good sale will come by . . . I can't believe how many 50% off Christmas stuff there is already! Yah, Christmas trees can be an investment .

@much2say I think I got my Christmas tree last time at 75%? It was something cheap! But right now, eh... Michaels has a tree for $500 originally $999. No thank you! Haha

That must be so frustrating for you. It seems you will have to get a new tree.

@DianneN But I am not sure. I do have a small tree and just bought some holiday wreaths to decorate.. Maybe I'll wait until after the holidays to get the tree I really want

I thought you were going to tell us that somebody broke into the shed and stole your Christmas tree. That would have been a low blow. I can understand your frustration of only using that tree one time and then getting rid of it. When you get your next one, you better keep a close eye on it throughout the year! I wil be getting my Christmas tree tomorrow (Saturday). We will be buying a real tree.

I put up my mini Christmas tree. I don't understand why they'd toss out a brand new tree literally without consulting. They have junk in there they didn't toss out. So annoying! And I found out I have more Christmas skirts and ornaments I haven't used. I don't know if I'm going to get a tree now....... or wait until after Christmas lol!! Yay, have a fun time picking out your tree!

@infatuatedbby Well, at least you have your mini tree up. That's better than nothing. And if you want to wait to get a great deal on a tree, then yes, wait until after Christmas!

Is it possible that someone stole your Christmas tree? It's strange that nobody remembers to have taken or donated it.

No, no one would have stolen the tree. They were cleaning it last time they visited and must have either donated or tossed it. I called his parents' and she said she doesn't remember but you could buy a small one instead. A big one would be a hassle to put up, so according to those words must have tossed it but saying it nicely?

@infatuatedbby What a rude thing to do. The tree was your tree and they had not to toss it without asking. Buy a new BIG tree.

Sorry to hear your tree has gone missing! I would be upset over that too. Especially if you just bought it last year! I just put a small tabletop tree up this year. It's a fiber optic tree and I haven't hung any ornaments on it yet. Debating if I will or not.

@Srbageldog Yep its gone. We called his mom asking if they tossed it or donated, they said they don't remember but we don't need a big tree anyway just get a small one. So I am guessing that means, it's tossed.

Oh that sounds frustrating. What a lucky find for someone at the thrift shop! We have a spindly tree we cut ourselves. It has lights and that is all because the lights are what I enjoy.

Wow that is awesome you cut your trees yourselves. Is it from a tree farm, or your own backyard? :) Happy Holidays.

@infatuatedbby we can buy a permit ($5.00) and cut down 3 trees on Crown land. ( government land) Only in certain areas. So we do that. But it can be hard to find a perfect one and this year's is pretty sparse.

@paigea That is very interesting. Did you just cut down one, or you're able to cut up to 3? :) I hear it is sparse here too but I don't have a real tree. My sister did buy one at Home Depot, it cost her like $50 or $60.

We got our small tree up a while ago, the kitten has been climbing up and down it like it was a real tree, quite hilarious. A pity about losing your Christmas tree like that. (Next time, making a note to the new tree: 'hand off or else!' ).

I asked my dad to check his house and he said nope, no tree. I don't know why in the world they'd toss a perfectly brand new tree away! It was in the Christmas tree box too, argh!

It's their shed. They previously lived here and they have a lot of stuff. He asked them to clean out items that is theirs and toss it out because majority of the house he's having to pay rent for is literally storing his parents things.

I don't set up a Christmas tree at home because it will occupy more space. We don't have this habit yet since it is not our festival. We still enjoy going out to see the beautiful Christmas tree outside and take photos.
