It's the most wonderful time of the year! The holiday lights are sparkling, the jolliest tunes are filling the radio waves, and Amazon wish lists are growing longer by the minute.
This year, there's a new way to get into the holiday spirit: dressing up like a Christmas tree!
All the cool kids are doing it! Well, the woman in today's story is doing it, and she seems pretty cool. It all went down when she made a promise to the Internet, and the Internet made sure she delivered.
This is Kelsey Hall. (There in the Christmas Tree costume.)

As she should have expected, Kelsey's tweet pretty quickly began picking up steam.

Kelsey, on the other hand, was not super thrilled about her tweet's virality.

She was especiallyregretful on Day 2 of the social experiment when it started raining:
