I can’t believe that I just paid $49 for a five foot tall balsam Christmas tree. It was the cheapest tree in the lot. Big fluffy trees were up to $150.

The first few years we were married (we were marries in 1959) we paid $1 for our trees. They looked like TREES, too, with plenty of room to hang ornaments. Now they clip trees into pom poms that are so full that ornaments stick out at right angles.

I remember how mad I was when the price went from $1 to $2.
