    An interesting take on the traditional family Christmas. A nice little dive into someone finally telling a typical American family to quit it with the pleasantries and actually enjoy the holiday--or find a better use of their resources. Certainly an interesting message for a traditional Christmas lineup.

    A good size cast for an equally charming play.

    The traditional family Christmas of over priced gifts and family squabbles as viewed by a grumpy millennial Christmas tree who has definitely got the needle. An entertainment with good characterful roles plus the opportunity for inventive costume design. This fresh take on the excesses of the holiday season would be a funny and thoughtful addition to any Christmas show of short plays, secular or faith based, with its original premise and great title!

    As a lover of all things Christmas, my intrigue was very much captured by the concept of this piece. It shines a light on society and the materialism that has taken over Christmas while providing very funny dialogue between the family and their disapproving Christmas tree. The prominent image of appreciation for what you have is made very clear in each of the unique characters and I think would look hilarious on stage!
