89-year-old American retiree from Wausau, Wisconsin has been living with a decorated Christmas tree for forty consecutive years.
According to the retiree Neil Olson, he decorated his Christmas tree even before the holidays in 1974 and since then decided not to remove the toys and not to take the Christmas tree in the closet.
And the thing is that back then the man made a vow: he will remove the tree, when his sons come back to him and gather in his house. He made such a vow in those early days, when his two sons went to war in Vietnam.
The American press reports that Olson's sons did not die and come back from the war. But one of the sons was seriously injured after being wounded and is disabled now, that does not allow him to visit his father in his home.
Therefore, Neil is still waiting when two sons will visit him, and the man will hide the toys in the closet after the holidays.
