Sad 'Charlie Brown' Christmas Tree Finds New Home
Some Reading, Pennsylvania, residents wanted the town’s pathetic-looking Christmas tree taken away, until there was a change of heart. INSIDE EDITION has the Christmas story.
The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree is what you call a Christmas tree!
Meanwhile, a 50-foot Christmas tree in the town of Reading, Pennsylvania, has droopy branches and the needles are falling off. It's not a hit with the local crowd.
One woman said, "It just reminds me of Charlie Brown."
She's referring to the holiday classic A Charlie Brown Christmas, in which the tree is really pathetic. Pathetic until the kids give it a little loving care and make it beautiful.
But in real life, it was a different story. In Reading, they had announced plans to get rid of the poor tree, and replace it with a better one.
"That's Tree-son," cried the headline in the Daily Mail.
Bruce Hendrixson runs the local Audi dealership and offered to adopt the orphaned tree.
Holding up a miniature of the Charlie Brown tree, Hendrixson said, "I even have the Charlie Brown tree here. I thought it was something we could bring here, embrace the fact it wasn't a perfect tree, and try and bring out the holiday spirit."
But don't despair, there's a happy ending for the sappy tree! The town has had a change of heart, and the tree is staying put. It's the triumph of the Charlie Brown Christmas tree.
