When a Pennsylvania town was forced to use a backup Christmas tree for the civic lighting ceremony, resident complained, demanding the city replace the tree. The city had planned to use a Christmas tree from a tree farm for the tree in the town center, but when crews went to get it, the owners would not let them get the tree because the ground was too wet. Instead, city workers chose a last-minute replacement from a city park. During the tree lighting ceremony, resident called the tree “pathetic,” “horrible,” and “pitiful.” In response to the outcry, the City Council president Francis Acosta the city will get a new tree and they his family would buy the tree and the community, business owners, and others would pay for the decorations. Officials say they plan on a do-over lighting ceremony when the new tree is in place, and the poor ugly tree will be donated to a local business.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
