DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene. Forgive some people in Seattle for thinking their neighbor was a little too attached to his Christmas tree. Look at Patrick Kruger's house and you see the bottom of his tree through a window, and the top pushing through a now-damaged roof. Kruger was actually having a little fun. He broke his 14-foot tree in two and used building materials to create the illusion. His plan was to entertain the neighborhood. He said people of all ages. I'd say it was a smashing success.
