          Heh. I deleted my reply, thinking the exact same thing. It had the words gusset and moist in it.

            Things are simpler when you’re in moderation. Don’t have to do your own thinking – can just blurt out whatever occurs to you and Broadsheet takes care of it.

    I was completely unaware of this.

    I just thought it we watered it to keep it looking fresh for the 6-8 weeks we have the tree up.

    yes, 6-8.

    I didn’t know people were now lighting small fires in their xmass trees before going to bed….

    Is this some sort of energy / heating cost-saving trend that’s somehow just passed me by?
    – Climate change(crisis) awareness must be really sinking in to the mainstream consciousness…

    I’ve got one of those potted Christmas trees from Supervalu, but no matter how well I water it it’s still dry as fupp. I presume nobody watered it before I bought it.
