Ô Christmas Tree

Every year, right after the beloved Christmas where the trees shine in every living room,
people drop their trees in the streets like rubbish, like nothing happened between them…
And it kinda scandalizes me.
So, I started to imagine the bloody story behind every tree abandoned in the streets.

I’m happy to start the lovely period of irony! The poor tree was lying on the wet and cold ground, alone, in the middle of the street. Right after Christmas. 🤙 His owner probably told him they would have a little digestive stroll together after the numerous Christmas dinners they had. And then, bam! he pushed the tree roughly on the floor and ran away as fast as possible to get back to his cozy warm apartment for himself.

Incredible! Same crime scene. The experts confirm the naked Xmas Tree jumped from the 5th floor after he saw his compañiero on the ground. Apparently he suffered from several injuries pre-mortem probably perpetrated by his owners not long before he jumped. The investigation keeps running... 🧐

After hearing about Xmas trees that tried to escape, the owners of this one find an idea: lock their beloved tree in a jail... Look at his size! He is just a child! Unbelievable!

Look at this poor little one cornered and scared. I can see him shiver. He still have in his branches some hay he probably snatched from the holy crib, trying to hold to anything he could while his owners were trying to get rid of him.

This is a real bloodbath! The Xmas Tree has been dismantled. Body pieces strew on the floor. The trunk hasn’t been found yet. I’m worried kids from the neighborhood will find it on a day of spring, completely rotten, insects growling around in a putrid air. 🕷🦗🐜

This one probably got the help of a kind homeless person who gave him some paper card to protect from the cold. But the wind was probably too strong for him.

The snow started to fall slowly above this Xmas Trees couple. At least they died together would say some of you. What can be more romantic? Just like Rose and Jack on this damn table-raft. They whispered some words and songs to each other, freezing, as the snow covered them until their last breath... 💕😭

This one seems hypnotized by the strong light. He can’t move further away, leaned against the wall, dazzled by the fire that burns in front of him. This is not the sunlight, no... this is a giant pyre, consuming everything, and soon this poor Xmas Tree. 🔥🚒

Ha this owner probably thought his tree was running out of battery... Can be a great metaphor though... Maybe better to use rechargeable batteries, just like rent trees in pot.

The owner of this xmas tree probably thought it would be nice to leave him close to a nature surrounding. The xmas tree was so sad to be left alone that he hugged the grass desperately to feel less lonely but fainted by asphyxiation.

This Xmas tree seems to be looking through the fence to search for the support of other trees. “Heeeelp” he is whispering through the cold metal bars. But the thin yellow branches are too fragile to be of any help. They will keep talking together until the Death comes pick up the poor Xmas tree... (This is heartbreaking) 🎄🍂🚜

Sometimes, I would like to take all the trees that have been abandoned in the street and place them all together in a park. Yes, that would make it a forest cemetery (cemetree 🤓). And maybe, during the night, when everyone is asleep, you could hear the trees lamentations... 👻

This Xmas tree look so old. Which normally would mean his owners spent a lot of time with him. Fair enough, I won’t be too harsh. But now that I think about it, isn’t it almost like trying to get rid of your grandpa instead of placing him in a retirement home?

As I was approaching, the big tree threatened me with his branches to not come any closer from the red motorbike. As I looked better, I saw he wasn’t alone: they were at least 4 of them.  I didn’t want any trouble so I moved slowly backward. They looked at me leaving and, as I finally reached the closest street corner, they all climbed over a motorbike and ride away in high speed. Gangstas... I can’t blame them though... after all they’ve been through. You gotta do what you gotta do.

Someone cut the feet of that one, so he couldn’t run away...

Can it be more explicit? This tree has been abandoned in front of a medical-surgery center! It make me think of these films where a car full of criminals arrives super fast in front of the emergency section of the hospital. In a tire squeal, the passenger door opens suddenly and one of the man is pushed out of the car. The car leaves then as fast as it arrives leaving a wounded tree - hem I mean man - in front of the hospital. Same modus operandi here...

Is this one hiding behind the fence to avoid getting seen by mean pedestrians?

These two figured it out: they packed up and tried to leave before it is too late. But the owner caught them in the act before they had time to fly. He shot them both as they were running away.

Caught in the act! At least 3 Xmas Trees managed to escape the container in which they were trapped by scrupulous owners. The one on the left managed to get out unscathed but the 2 others seem to be in precarious conditions, crawling on the ground. They haven’t drink anything and haven’t seen any light for days!

This beauty got dropped pretty quickly. According to the freshness of the branches, the CSI experts agree to say the tree was probably bought just one day before Xmas and abandoned in the street one day after this holy celebration. Worse, it seems that few branches were cut while the tree was still alive and thrown in a trash bin not far from him... 😨

I think this Xmas tree decided to challenge his destiny and escape with a bike! I saw him trying to break the bike lock... Go Tree! Go! 🚲💨

Someone tried to hide the body of his Xmas tree by pushing it inside a bush from the street, so that no one could see the crime... green on green... it almost worked.

This one looks smashed. Look at the branches: some are like dislocated, looking to the wrong direction. The kids’ owners have probably played trampoline on his poor body...

Is it me or is this one looking exhausted after a long run and is leaning against a tree to find his breath? He was probably trying to escape his destiny...

Am i the only one who sees dead bodies when I see these tree bags??

This is torture: like in one of these epic movies where the hero is stuck between walls, the Xmas Tree is blocked between these 2 containers. And the worse is coming: both containers are slowly moving towards each other, crushing everything on their path. Will the Xmas Tree find a way to escape before getting smashed? I hope  @cattiself  , who made the picture, had the time to save him from a certain death... did you  @cattiself  ?did you? 😨

I was walking in the night, on a little street. Nobody was around. When suddenly I heard some noise. Very light noise. Like a mix of scratching and sobbing. As I approach closer the sounds, I saw this little Xmas Tree. I must have scared him as he turned his head toward me, looking terrified. He was crying in the dark, alone and cold. Devastating.

💩 If even the dogs start to show disrespect to the trees... Unless it’s human...?🧐

This day was terrifying. Every street was strewed by Xmas Trees. Few got thrown naked when other where covered with grave clothes. One even had suffer from a cryogenic experiment... how far is going humanity?

That’s a big crime scene where used to stand a giant Xmas Tree. ~ Okay peeps, I think this is going to be the last Xmas Tree I’ll post for this year. I still have tons of trees in my photo library but I kinda got overwhelmed by the work. Next year I’ll start with the ones that haven’t been posted yet.  Thank you for the ones of you who followed or sent me pics! This is just the beginning! 💪🏻🎄🌲✊🏻
