Charlie Brown Christmas Trees in Hawaii?

Hawaii has been hit by a shortage of Christmas trees, driving prices for a 2 foot tree up to $55!  As KITV reports – Short trees for tall prices. Perhaps it’s time to follow Charlie Brown’s example.

With all the beautiful trees and flowers we have on Kauai, perhaps we need to change our traditions and save some money. 

Lights on Palm trees??  I’m sure Santa won’t mind.

Tell us your Hawaii Christmas story….

    $50 bucks for a 2-foot tree? No way, Jose!

    My investment of $90 for an artificial Christmas Tree 10 years ago pays dividends every year! In addition, my tree is pre-lit and has fiber-optic lit “pine needles” that glow and sparkle in different colors that rotate from a color wheel inside the base.

    It glows and sparkles and has different colors, and all I have to do is take it out of the box, set it up, and plug it in. Presto — instant tree, at no cost!

    Merry Christmas, Susanna!

    • Aloha Bob,
      Yes, growing up I loved smell of the 7 ft tall pine trees we had in Nebraska. But last year I bought a 6 ft tall fake one for Christmas with my daughter and grandsons on sale a KMart, lights included. This year, I pulled it out of storage and gave it to my hanai daughter who needs to spend her money on gifts for her 3 kids, not a 2′ tree 🙂 For me, Christmas is all about the keiki… Mele Kalikimaka!
