I'm all about the live Christmas trees, which means I take upon myself quite the burden to keep it fresh. I keep it watered, I add plant food, I keep it away from heating vents. I recently stumbled upon a tip guaranteed to keep a tree fresh past New Year's!

Crush up birth control pills and sprinkle it into the water!

I don't know why aspirin works, but it does, so I'm leaning toward believing this.

But I'll need to lie to get some free ones from Planned Parenthood -- they can be expensive. And I don't want to be an irresponsible radio host and promote this idea so well people begin using pills they should have used!

What do you think? Have you heard of this?
