The Italians are not happy!

“The tree was quickly nicknamed Spelacchio, or Mangy, because so many of its dead needles were dropping off, leaving the tree looking a bit bare…Some likened the scruffy tree to a toilet brush.” Not exactly what you want your tree to be compared to.

Maybe they’ll do better next year?
