Celebratory Christmas Tree Burning in Fla.

For some reason, Ethel Miles of Green Coves Springs, Florida still had her previous years' Christmas tree outside her house on 9/11. In honor of the lives lost in the terrorist attack, Miles decided to bring the tree back inside, paint it white, "decorated it with a patriotic theme and vowed to leave it up until bin Laden was dead," writes Heather Lovejoy at The Florida Times-Union.  Miles burned the symbolic tree Monday after hearing of bin Laden's death. She told the Florida paper that her first thought after hearing the news last night was, "Oh, hallelujah."

Of course she said "hallelujah."  After ten years that thing must have been quite an eyesore.
