Every year, millions of people all around the world wait for the Christmas season to roll around. We dream of the colors, the decorations and, of course, the presents. We look forward to the celebration of the all that the season represents - the belief and hope that we can all choose to be our best selves. With so much to look forward to, what's not to love about Christmas? Well, nothing...except maybe the annual task of putting a fresh-cut tree into an aged and weary Christmas tree stand....
