We went to the Whitehouse Christmas Tree Farm yesterday.
While we waited for our friends Denise and Robin to arrive we looked at the tree stands they sell. Duke Jr. walked over and told us he called them marriage savers.
They drill a hole in the bottom of the tree and you just set the tree on a large peg.
It was so much easier than using a wrench to screw rusty bolts into the stump (my job) while someone else gets impatient holding the tree up (Dan's job).
