Last year's tree was successfully consumed by flames in less than three minutes. For reals. I have pictures to prove it.
|The anticipation was unbearable.|
|Fireworks were added to the bottom...|
|And then it's off!|
|And the fire shoots into the sky.|
|Hopefully none of those helicopters that have been flying overhead all evening will notice.|
|Hopefully the power lines overhead don't melt.|
|Hopefully the figure in the fire doesn't decide to come out and burn us all.|
|Hopefully I am not crazy for thinking this is amazingly beautiful.|
|Hopefully the sparks don't catch the house, neighbors' house, etc, on fire.|
|In an astonishing short time, it dies out.|
|And like that, it's gone.|
Also, for the record, my hair smells like a forest fire today.
