Wausau, WIS.- A slim spruce covered in tinsel and dusty Christmas decorations has stayed parked in Neil Olson's living room for 40 years now and it somehow has retained its needles over those four decades.

"Most of 'em don't last, Olson, 89 said. "The needles are kept on for a reason. It's supernatural, I say."

This might be some kind of record. In any case this old guy has saved 40 trees from being cut down and saved himself a lot of work putting them up and taking them down.

I used to go to a tavern in Detroit that left its Christmas decorations up year round. I don't know why they did this, I never asked.

Maybe they liked Christmas and wanted to celebrate it all year or maybe they were lazy.
