Oh my goodness, I was scared to death to put my tree up but it has been there for 2 weeks and nothing has happen. I decorate the rest of my house with snowman's ones that stand on the floor about 3 feet tall. I put stuffing fiber on all of my stands and have over 100 snowman out. I am scared to death every day when I come home that he has killed a couple of snowman. Not yet, the most he has done is when wants attention he will go over and take a bite of the snow that I have on all the stands. Hopefully all of my snowman survive the winter.
