We went and chopped down our own tree yesterday. We got a 10 footer. We put it in the stand right in the middle of the formal LV. Well, I heard a soft crash and sure enough, the entire tree was on the ground. My beautiful glass ornaments that I take such good care of are shattered. The water dumped out onto the carpet & soaked the tree skirt.
Now we have it shoved into the corner for the extra support... sigh, I think I just may get a fake tree next year. This is a miserable experience. Or maybe it's just too big for the stand. =(

Oh that sucks, but trust me, fake ones can fall too. When I was in about the 4th grade, I was at a friend's house. They had a train that ran under the tree. One of the branches hung low & blocked the train, so I crawled under the tree to lift the branch to allow the train to go by & over went the tree! Luckily no harm done, and the mom & my friend both forgave me! :p
