Do you know how hard it is to get a tree to stand straight up in the tree stand? Super hard. You end up yelling at your parents or your spouse or your siblings and just forget about trying to do it yourself. And then your cat decides that it hates trees. Hates anything to do with Christmas...all those happy people with their stupid decorations. For your viewing pleasure: The Cats Who Hate Christmas
They are cute little fuzzy creatures on the outside but really they are plotting to kill you. You and that horrible spiky tree you decided to erect in their throne room, I mean living room. So apparently cats don't like Christmas and they are intent on stealing the joy out of it for you too.
