Christmas tree tradition in full swing

IMAG0435Come outside and find that someone has hidden a huge Christmas tree behind the barn. The last thing I need is kids thinking that I have trees in the barn so I quickly carried it away and dumped it further down the road. Later in the day it vanished. I really like this tradition(you can read more about it in the post The big hunt is on) but there is a negative side to it as well. Kids(in the age spann of 7-25 year-olds) breaking in to sheds, barns, houses to hide or find trees. You see them all over the island from morning until late evening cycling around in their one-piece padded overalls. If a tree is found there is a lot of pushing, showing and pulling and sometimes fistfights. All in all though hope the tradition will carry on. At least the kids get a lot of fresh air, exercise and excitement.
