O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum, thy leaves are so dry now.
Today we had to take down the tree, as it was getting quite dry and dropping needles by the ton. It had been drinking until a day or so ago, but was not brittle, just dry and shedding.
I would much rather take the tree down after January 6, but, that's the way the needle drops, I guess.
At least the vacuum will smell great for several months!
