Ashland did it again.
First, Halloween. Now, Christmas.
Ashland Christmas Tree 2019
Over the weekend, they got the town Christmas tree ready.
According to a SkookNews.com report, the tree officially gets lit as part of the Ashland Old Fashioned Christmas festivities on Dec. 7.
But look …
According to report referenced above, it was a local donation. So really, it’s the thought that counts.
If someone hadn’t donated this tree, Ashland might not have a tree at all this year.
And we don’t want to be mean on account of it being the Christmas season and all but really …
Right away, let’s avoid the obvious.
Let’s talk about the business side of this, the part that greets people driving into Ashland.
Little full … lotta sap.
And that’s just making the “back” side of it look worse … if possible.
First, Halloween. Now, Christmas
Ashland’s war on the holidays continues.
Earlier this year, the borough’s recreation committee announced that a Trunk-or-Treat event would replace the traditional Trick-or-Treat.
After some public outrage, they reversed course and said that it wasn’t a replacement for Trick-or-Treat.
But now, this tree happens. And you have to wonder what’s happening.
Worst Christmas Tree
Is this the worst Christmas tree? Ever?
Ashland residents are letting their opinions be heard on Facebook, reacting to this tree.
“Some guy donated half a tree. My kids and I were like WTF when we went to get gas the other day,” someone posted.
Another person says, “My friend had a snap chat of that tree, take a ride around & look at the back of it lmao 😂”
One lady wonders what we’re all asking, “Why would anyone choose to put this up at the town’s intersection?”
