CrAzy Trees and the Number 24

Thanks for following, ***Emily***!!!

TWENTY-FOUR DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!

...so why does my countdown say 22? Good question! I have no idea. I set it to count down to December 25th...*shrug* Ah well. You get the idea.

Speaking of ideas, I've decided to do both Christmas ideas, the countdown and the daily Christmas...thing. So, something interesting about the number 24...

24: Subtracting one from any of its divisors (except 1 and 2, but including itself) yields a prime number. 24 is the largest number with this property, for to have this property a number cannot be divisible by a prime greater than three, nor can it be divisible by 9 or 16.

Kind of a "brainful", isn't it?

Now, in the spirit of preparing for Christmas, here are nine Christmas trees! Enjoy!

Serious recycling goin' on...

Hmm, she's really putting herself into her decorations...
Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown!Whoa! Who came up with this??
A Christmas tree made out of CDs!
I don't even want to think about how long it took to free up all those bottles...
Colorful, earth-friendly, what's not to like?
I'm not really sure what this is...
God bless AmericaMERRY TWENTY-FOUR-DAYS-UNTIL CHRISTMAS!

P.S. I think I'm going to start doing every-other day. Tomorrow I'll just do something about the number 23, Friday I'll do a Christmas thing, and so on.

No name: Haha, nah, don't worry they won't always be this nerdy :) I'm glad you enjoy my posts!

Gracie: Thanks! Haha, I know, right? The Charlie Brown one is one of my favorites, too.

Same!!! I haven't been this excited since like age nine.

Cassie: I wondered the same thing, because my countdown says 22 days, but when I actually counted the days out, it was 24. I think it's because I'm counting today and the 25 the counter is not or something. Does that make sense?

Thanks! I'm starting to like it, too. Haha, the header needs a ton of work, the current one is just temporary :)

also, 24 is the reverse of 42 which is the answer to...everything! life, the universe and everything! (hehe, just seeing how many Hitch-hikers are following..:)

now if we only knew what the questin is...

HOW MANY MILES MUST ONE MAN WALK?

So long, and THANKS FOR ALL THE FISH!

*Monstrously geeky grin*

Cavender James said...

Yes, the answer is 42, but what is the question?

Love the post, Kendra. Sorry I don't exist lately... (Still STILL STILLSTILLSTILL grounded)

Remember when I told you about my friend Aaron? All those times? And Josh? And other Josh? We made a CD Christmas tree. Except we used fire and melted them together. It was actually the night before I brought a lighter to church and almost set myself on fire.

I figures it out, thanks! I like ur whole look now too. Very festive. Also about the weekly blog thing. I just wanted something else 'cause I seem to run out of things. Not so much right now because of the holidays. But give it till february and I'll be lucky it I post twice a week. I wouldn't drea mof using any of your ideas without saying in bolg pretty colored print: "THIS IS KENDRA LOGAN'S AT CAPRE DIEM BY THE WAY GO THERE NOW AND FOLLOW HER!" lol so yeah. But I just wanted something of my own. Well I guess it wouldn't be technically my own if other people helped, but still I wanted somethin' different.
Thanks anywho though. I'll figure something else.

Bleah: Aw, haha, I hope you don't think I was being...over...something. Lol, I don't seem to be very articulate today :) I just didn't want my poem to be printed somewhere else and not have it be said to be mine. Maybe that's selfish...At any rate, thanks for being so gracious with that :)
