Winds topple National Christmas tree

Even Mother Nature has had it with politics in Washington.

On Saturday, high winds brought down America’s Christmas tree, snapping the 47-year-old, 42-foot high Colorado blue spruce near its base and sending it toppling to the ground on the Ellipse near the White House.

“We’re glad that there were no injuries,” National Park spokesman Bill Line told Washington TV station WRC.

Line said don’t worry.  A new tree will be in place by next Christmas.

  1. Did any one hear it fall, I wonder? And what the hell is it still up for? Oh that’s right, it’s always Christmas in Washington.

  2. The ancient druids would consider this a bad omen arising the need for sacrifice to appease “Badhh-Be-bad” the god of the wind and calls for a “wicker man” to be filled with politicians and so be lit. : |

    • LOL, sounds like a ritual that needs to be resumed. Does a tree always have to fall or can we just do it every year for good luck? 🙂
