Today marks one month since Christmas. Although the Christmas spirit can live forever in your heart, it might be time to take down those decorations.

If you’re still sporting the holiday trimmings and feel like you’re being judged, just tell your neighbors you’re keeping your Christmas tree so you can take it for a walk.

That’s what Lakewood neighbor Lee Scammel suggests in a how-to video after someone threw a tree over his fence and into his backyard. He chronicles the tale in this video called “The Ugly Christmas Tree.”

So how do you walk a Christmas tree? Watch the video for details.

You’ve been working hard all month and deserve a break. So go ahead and take that tree for a walk…preferably to the dumpster.
