The Aluminum Christmas Tree

Use this discount on my books until Christmas.

Aluminum Christmas trees became popular in the 1960s and the largest manufacturer of these trees was in Wisconsin. Their tree sold more than one million. My grandparents had an aluminum tree with a four-color spotlight that rotated: first red, then blue, yellow, and green.
My biggest memory of that tree? My dad hated it. So fake!

Two cousins, my sister, my brother (on his new tricycle), and I (down in front) pose in front of the silver tree.
Merry Christmas!

  1. I remember aluminum trees but we never had one. I prefer a live tree but I now, for convenience, I put up an artificial evergreen. Thanks for sharing! Merry Christmas!!
