Willowdale family’s tree is a TOWERING GIANT
Every Christmas, Sally and Dean Church of Luling bring in a giant Christmas tree to celebrate the season. And when we say giant, we mean giant - this beauty is 16-feet tall.
“When we moved into our home 30 years ago, I bought a regular tree and it was dwarfed by our high ceilings,” says Sally, who lives in Willowdale subdivision. The Churches have been custom-ordering a tree from the mountains of North Carolina ever since.
This year, it took 10 neighborhood boys to bring the 16-foot tree into the house and hoist it up. It took a week for Sally to decorate the tree -- even with help from neighbors and friends.
The tree is beautiful, lit up with 7000 white lights (35 strings of 200 lights each) and adorned with over 80 gold crosses, angels, and musical instruments.
Got something bigger, wilder or weirder than a huge Christmas tree? We want to know.

Dr. Rodney Lafon boiled down his decision to announce his retirement last month to a simple factor. With 40 years accumulated in the school system he had come to a point in his career where he would make nearly the same yearly salary as a retiree as if he chose to continue working.
