This is how Christmas trees come in France:
There is no tromping around the forest
(or Christmas tree farm)
choosing the prettiest tree,
chopping it down,
dragging it through the snow.
Instead, you go to a supermarket or garden store,
try and guess which wrapped-up tree is the nicest,
throw it in the trunk of the car.
(In all fairness, our sapin de Noel does look pretty cute now that it's decorated
& no longer wrapped up like a mummy.)
