Neil Olson, an old man of 89 years from Wisconsin, hasn’t taken down his Christmas tree since the winter of 1974. The tree somehow has retained his needles over those four decades.”Most of ’em don’t last,” Olson, 89, said. “The needles are kept on for a reason. It’s supernatural, I say.”
The old man put up the tree 40 years ago. Then, two of his six sons went to serve in Vietnam. The man’s plan was to take down the tree when he had all his sons home for Christmas at the same time. Unfortunately, his eldest son has been disabled in war, so he is unable to take the trip back home.
