    Oh Bazza, bless you for that.

    Hello Nic, can I post my classroom one just to share. I am so pleased with it. We don't put ours up at home until my son has had his birthday cards up a week. I won't put my name, just my tutor group.

    Yeah me to but know I get dead arms and legs and wake up with cramp

    Don't ever let your wife get rid of it

    Give the prize to the smallest cheapest tree, chances are that person is too poor for a big fancy one thus more in need, my tree is a rubbish little 3ft one, same as last year and the year before that etc so I don't see any point in taking a picture of it again.

    I'm not in it for the prize, our tree is 7ft so we are obviously rich.

    Exactly; someone who has a 10 foot £200 jobbie in their living room doesn't really need the £10 voucher if they can afford that to be fair.

    What a silly comment, Christmas Trees and decorations cost very little, you can get very expensive small trees also.

    So going by your logic only poor people should win comps, Hey look the Flame deer comp why not PM admin to only let members win that have posted at least 3 Woah is me complaining posts.

    What's to say that the person with the biggest & best tree has had the tree & decorations years and can't afford a new one?!

    If you want an expensive tree try balsamhill.co.uk/

    Thanks, done it last year too. Pretty sure another member used to do it before me.

    you can tell by looking, same applies to age of the stuff, well excuse me for thinking if you've got enough money to buy a big tree full of fancy stuff 10 squid will mean very little to you.

    I could afford to buy all the prizes in the flamedeer comp but I'd still like to win it all

    Maybe the winner will give it to charity which seems what alot of people would do on this site just as I would.

    Why does anyone compete when they don't need the prize?

    I think what she is saying in a more or less round about way is she should win as she is poor!

    Some folk need to get off their back sides and actually help themselves and not just expect things handed to them in a plate!

    Heres mine, not sure if you can make out the name and date?

    I always compete for the children's hospitals. ( its a charity thing i don't like to talk about )

    My tree is falling to pieces and isn't helped by a kitten climbing up it and attacking the baubles on it, so one I won't be entering :-(
    Good luck everyone xx

    Glad to see this one running again nicster will pop our tree pic up tomorrow
