Country's Worst Christmas Tree Unveiled to Shoppers

The folks in Durham County in northeast England got a sad little surprise recently when this "threadbare . . . sorry looking Christmas tree" was unveiled by none other than Natasha Hamilton, a singer for the band Atomic Kitten. As soon as she switched on the Christmas lights, the snark began. "I would describe this tree as just like a twig," sniffed one shopper. "If the shopping centre couldn't have afforded to put up a better Christmas tree," complained another onlooker, "they shouldn't have bothered." "I think they should take it away and throw it in a skip," huffed another person. (I guess a skip is a fire!) Whoa, people. Maybe the good kids of Charlie Brown can remind you guys what Christmas (and this season in general) is all about. I feel strangely protective of this wan little twig festooned with lights . . .

I've seen worse, one year I went to picked out a tree with my dad his girlfriend at the time and her kids. We walked around for what must have been an hour, pointing out about a dozen wonderful trees, but no she had to chose the tree. (at this point the rest of us were wondering why we were even there if she was planing on acting this way.) The one she picked out looked more like a bush. The rest of us spent the season referring to it as W.

The 'skip' is the dumpster but I think that person would be ok with a fire too.

I guess the people shopping at this little store were "dirty" and that is why they are so judgemental!! Wouls they rather the store spend a billion dollars on a fancy tree and go up on the prices of the items in the store?!?!?
