N.C. family has 61 Christmas trees
A mother in Trinity, N.C., says her family home has 61 Christmas trees, each of which is decorated with a different theme.
Bren Knox said her home's Christmas trees began to multiply 11 years ago when her daughter requested a tree in her bedroom to help her sleep while Knox was out of town, WFMY-TV, Greensboro, N.C., said Wednesday.During the ensuing years, Knox said she added tree after tree to the home and began creating themes for each of the holiday items. Among the themes featured in the Knox home are chef and fruit-themed trees.
When people hear how many trees I have in my home, they think I'm crazy, the mother of two said.
But once they come in, they say it is the most magnificent, beautiful thing they've ever seen.
Knox, who occasionally holds open houses to showcase her tree collection, told WFMY-TV her favorite tree contains items her children personally made.
