As long as you have the spirit of the season in mind I don't think it matters what kind of tree you have. LOL I suppose anything - even a good thing - can be used for evil. It's all in the intent in which you use it. Merry Christmas!

I couldn't put my tree up upside-down. No way. Might as well put Santa in a speedo, too. It just ain't right.

Santa in a speedo? You might as well stick him in Jamaca while you're at it. I agree. it just wouldn't be right.
