Welcome to SANDYLAND!!


So, back in 2006 I got sick.  I got really, really sick still have issues with my lungs and my voice and junk in my throat (sorry to spring that on all you).  And I developed severe sensitivities to (many) certain scents (*yeesh* that was a mouthful) and so I haven’t had a real Christmas tree in quite a few years.  It makes me sad because I love Christmas trees and I love the smell of them.  But, y’know, breathing seems to be sort of vital so I have had the “pleasure” of having a fake Christmas tree.  Can someone please tell me how on earth my synthetic Christmas tree sheds more than the real ones do?  Honestly.  Such a mess all the time.

My Tree

My Tree

I spend Christmas Eve and Christmas day at my parents’ house and my mom always has the most beautiful trees – yes, trees.  As in plural.  As in there’s one in almost every room – but the main one is always pretty spectacular….here’s one from a few years ago.  Not her best but still pretty lovely.

  1. Air Wick Evergreen plug in scents, thats what we use to enhance the Christmas tree smell through out the house in December…Yes I love it too. I think you can also find some similar tree smelling candles too, if you haven’t tried that yet and your lungs permit. Yes that smell is one thing I love about Christmas time..

    • Yeah, I think those scents would be too strong for me. I’d lose my voice in an instant.
