Growing up Muslim, I never celebrated Christmas. Never kept a tree in my house, or woke up to a bunch of wrapped gifts downstairs. We didn’t believe in Santa or leave cookies out for a bearded stranger. Unless you count my great-grandfather who sported a badass beard of his own, but he was hardly a stranger. And he capped it at one cookie because of diabetes. So yeah, no Christmas for us.

But just because my family didn’t partake in the Yuletide festivities, doesn’t mean I don’t know a beautiful Christmas tree when I see one.

And these Christmas trees are no beauties. These Christmas trees are sad. These trees need to be taken out of the house immediately. I’d rather have no tree than these trees.
