burn baby burn
Every spring we burn the previous year's Christmas tree - it's become a family tradition. There are different methods of setting it off - like when they aimed Roman candles at it. This year Mike and his friend lined up strips of cardboard and squirted a line of accelerant leading up to the tree. It took a lot longer than expected for the flames to get to the tree, but it did work. Spectacular.
(And don't worry about anything else catching on fire - the Christmas tree burns out very quickly, and we've had lots of rain in the previous few days, so everything surrounding was still very wet.)
