I can support a 'green' Christmas but I don't have to like it

The smells of Christmas always made me jolly
From lush green pine trees to boughs of holly
It made me think that I lived deep in the forest
We loved those times and loved life with a zest
Alas, tis a modern world that we live in today
Where a real tree's a sin that causes urban decay
With a fake plastic tree in a tiny fake stand
Now our Christmas scents all come from a can

We do a "green" Christmas... We get a live tree, decorate it, enjoy, etc, then when we're done I feed it to my sheep, who eat the bark and needles, then we burn the rest!!

As for artificial trees, green ones I could live with and enjoy, but blue? silver? white? PINK?!?!

*Goes off to enjoy pretty green tree that's real*
