Be happy with any Christmas tree

In response to the letter from

Mary Martin

(“Montrose Christmas tree is shameful,” Dec. 12), I also don’t especially like this tree, but not knowing where it came from, who chose this tree or how much it cost, I am happy to put up with it.

Our great little town of Montrose has

the Christmas

parade, trolley rides, Christmas bands and, of course,

Santa Claus

. Perhaps after budgeting for all of these wonderful things, that was the only affordable tree.

In these tough economic times, we should be happy we even have a Christmas tree!
