Thursday, December 11, 2003Here's a lovely shagalicious item we should encourage the return of: the aluminum Christmas Tree!
Imagine the patriotic - and politically correct - possibilities! We can bolster the economy by boosting domestic aluminum manufacture, save energy because electric lights are verboten on metal branches (use the funky rotating color wheel instead!) - not to mention we can save thousands of poor natural Christmas trees, who can survive another year or two.
I'm sure they'd rather end up as a National Enquirers somewhere than as dried-up, discarded living room ornaments. No; seriously though, I think aluminum trees are very chic - my Christmas sensibilities definitely lean towards 1960's Modern Style. Even Starbucks® Coffee has aluminum-tree style holiday decor this year.
Hmm...I would love to have a Gobbler-era Christmas tree. Thanks, Traveling In Style!
