No. 9 - Christmas Tree Burnings
There's nothing as simultaneously dangerous and awe-inspiringly beautiful as a good tree burning party. What used to be a classless gesture of pulling your Christmas tree by its short and pricklies and tossing it into the gutter is now a festive post-holiday holiday.
The locals round up all the neighborhood trees left sadly alone for the trash man and deposit them in a monstrous pile of fresh pine-smelling fun. Once that puppy is stacked a couple dozen trees high and set ablaze, you and your neighbors can dance like peyote-tripping natives around its incredible flame and kiss the holidays a fond farewell. Expect a very potent, long-lasting pine air freshener, along with the fire department showing up shortly after.
