This Dad’s Reaction To Getting A Fake Christmas Tree Is So Iconic That It’s Because Its Own Meme
If Christmas is your favorite, you might agree that the best part of the holiday is having a tree in your home — decorating it, gazing at the twinkling lights, smelling the rich pine. If you're spending the holidays in the Napoli household, though, don't dare utter a thing about getting a fake Christmas tree, because the patriarch might flip out. That's the exact story 21-year-old Madison Napoli shared on Twitter, and the viral video is nothing short of hilarious.
The debate between artificial trees and natural trees go on. We recently learned that natural trees are more eco-friendly in the short-term, as well as how stories of Christmas trees making you sick might be a tad misunderstood. Maybe that's why this father is so indignant that his wife could have the gall to even suggest they buy an artificial tree this season. How could you?? How could anyone??
Daughter Madison shared the video on Twitter, and her dad's outrage at the thought of anything less than a natural Christmas tree has inspired over 80,000 retweets, more than 220,000 likes, and over four million views. Papa Napoli is ticked; and somewhere, Santa is shaking his head.
An artificial tree... Come on, people.
Check out the video below, and try not to smile. I dare you. (And for anyone wondering, they ended up getting a real Christmas tree. Crisis averted.)
