Either your lens wasn't centered in the room or the walls/ceiling are not square. I (almost) fixed the level of the baseboard and it threw the shelving and ceiling off.

Haha, nice. The house was built in 1890, but it's still pretty square.

I think that effect was from using my wide angle lens and not being in the exact center of the room.

I have managed to avoid dragging the tree out of the attic so far this year, I think I might be in the clear. That 14' monstrosity is a pain in the ass.

You should stop trying to shove a 14' tree up your butt then.

Still in process. We have 2 fake trees and one real tree in our living room. Between you, me and the US National Forest ranger, the real tree is exactly 11.99999' tall.

5 Christmas trees in my house. 1 real (cut it the day after Thanksgiving) and 4 fake (1 in living room, 1x3' tree in each kids room).

My wife would love 1-2 more, haha.

My wife is the same.

One fake tree is decorated traditionally with colored lights and all the random ornaments gathered over the years. The other fake one is decorated cowboy style, with cowboy boot lights and a lariat and a hat. The humongous real tree just gets white lights. The real tree is a true Griswold experience, involving driving around on old National Forest logging roads, a chainsaw, a camp fire, hot chocolate, beer, lots of bickering over finding the right tree, etc.

She want's more fake trees, too.

We also have colored lights in the pine tree in front of our house and one of those laser starlight things, and light up deer and a motorized light up santa in a bumper car . . and lights on the house. Oh, and a light up wreath on the door. There's also a lit up nativity scene on the piano.

It's nutty, but it does look awesome when everything is lit up for our Christmas Eve party.

These women have an eye for decoration.

I do some moderate outdoor decorating which basically consists of the front porch with pre-decorated/lit garland and some lit fake pine trees.
