I have you beat on the tree, I bought it our 1st Christmas together and that was 12 years ago! It sheds so bad like a real tree, every year we say "I can't believe it still has needles on it!"

I love these little info posts too! They're so fun, and I'm surprised sometimes at how much I learn about my friends!! You HAVE to watch White Christmas, btw, I used to pretend I was one of the main girl characters and I would sing and do all the dances during the movie and I also wanted one of their pretty red furry Christmas dresses SOOOOOO bad!!
