...because I haven't sent all of my cards out yet.
This really did happen to me this Christmas. No pine smell. We selected our tree at a tree farm, cut it on the spot, and yet there wasn't that burst of pine tree scent in the room that reminds us it is the Christmas season. I did experience a little of that magic Christmas scent on the day I took the ornaments and lights off the tree. The scent of pine finally filled the air so I left it standing naked in my living room for two days just to enjoy it. Now it stands happily on my front porch for the birds. I hang homemade treats on it all winter.
