To some people, decorating for the holidays is a lovely, personal endeavor. They pull out their sentimental ornaments, homemade garlands and hand-me-down table runners and set up their homes for the season just for them. Others treat decorating like a competition, wanting to be the house that gets all the passersby and ends up on the local news.
This is for those people.
We've all seen those extra AF decorations that sync up to music for exciting, repeating light shows, right? Like so:
Well, a TikTok video is going viral for going even farther than that. User Brielle caught the show on camera, in which the music begins, only to be cut off -- by the Christmas trees. One big and one small, they begin to verbally argue about things like cue times and color coordination, starting and stopping the show once again when they still couldn't get it right.
There are some cheeky slights thrown in there, like the little guy getting accused of "drinking some tree sap" due to his inability to get the timing right.
"You started early again," Big Tree says.
"Dude...ugh...I gotta be honest. I don't even know how to count," Little Tree retorts.
Brielle, reliable TikToker that she is, posted extra videos to show us more of the chatty trees, and they end up pulling it together for a moment and give each other some props for their performance...until they start arguing again, this time about who gets to be Tree #1 versus Tree #2.
The light show in full doesn't happen until the trees "get along," and the result, synced to an orchestral version of "Carol of the Bells," is actually high up there on Christmas light lists.
If you think about it, isn't bickering about Christmas light placement what the holidays are all about?
