Can we talk about the tree in A very supernatural christmas? The one that sam never wanted in the first place.
The tree that he decorated with car fresheners and plastic balls. The tree that stands on a chair in an old paint bucket. The tree that he only thought would bring bad memories with it.
But that doesn’t matter anymore, because a tree is what dean wanted. He wanted a real christmas this year. So sam tries to give one to him. Because the is exactly what dean had done for him when they were kids.
He buys eggnog, some sad christmas decorations (all probably from the gas station) and fixes and decorates the little tree. He can’t deny it. it looks pretty sad. But he tries to convince himself that it’s the thought that counts.
And he does it all for his brother, and when he sees the way dean looks at it, he thinks to himself that maybe, it isn’t such a bad christmas tree after all.
