103 at this point to be exact! That's right Alliseon Siewart has over 100 Christmas Trees in her house!
For Siewert, these trees are an addiction that began 13 years ago with the birth of her daughter, Kristin.
Siewert begins setting up her trees in October. It takes more than a month, and each tree has a story. There is a Norwegian tree because of Siewert's heritage, a wine cork reindeer tree and a Martha Stewart tree.
It is Siewert's friends who enable her addiction. They buy her ornaments, and then it's time to decorate a new tree!
"When I get an ornament I just have to create a tree for it," Siewert said.
Siewert has 103 trees at last count, and when they come down in January, she says it is depressing.
"I'm like 'oh, it is sad.' It is a sad day when my trees come down, but it is like also cleansing," Siewart said.
I finally broke down and bought a fake tree this year so I wouldn't have to deal with the needles, and watering.... imagine dealing with over 100 of them?!
My cat has destroyed enough ornaments from just the ONE tree alone! He'd lose his MIND in that house!
