At the end of the holiday season, what do you do with your Christmas tree if you use a live tree?

But you'll want to pack it up in an air-tight container to avoid Christmas Tree Syndrome. 

If you're like me and my wife though, and you like to celebrate the season with a real tree, then you'll want to make sure you recycle your tree this year and not just throw it out to the curb for pick up.

Humorous Signs Return to New Jersey Highways

Humorous and sometimes snarky safety messages made their return to New Jersey highways during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti told Fox Philadelphia they've dialed back the snark in this year's messages to keep the Federal Highway Administration satisfied that they are not distracting.
