That is not a camera trick, the tree is that crooked. It turns out the trunk of the tree is no where near straight. After many attempts to make it straight we had to settle for this. Granted it is decorated nicely, but just slightly askew.
The first thing I did was place a cinder block on the stand to hold the tree in place.
This seemed to fix the problem, however it was only temporary. After Rachael had finished trimming the tree, it fell over. Luckily nothing but the stand broke.
This was next solution. I screwed a hook into the wall and tied a freakin rope around the tree. It looks silly, but at least it isn't going anywhere.
Has anybody else had these kind of problems? What is your worst Christmas tree catastrophe?
Other than being a little lopsided, it is a nice tree.
