Pastor has 111 Christmas trees in his house


December is Pastor Jerry Powell's favorite month. He loves Christmas and he loves Christmas trees. The proof? He has 111 of them -- and they're all squeezed inside his family home.

There's so many that Powell tags each tree so he can remember what room they go in. He's got them in the living room, the bedroom, and even the bathroom.

"They go from every shape and size. They go all the way from towering over 9-feet tall. There's some that's about a foot, foot-and-a-half tall," he said. "Just tonight, I was walking down the hallway and I saw a corner and thought, 'Hm, a right size tree probably could fit there."

Powell says after the holidays, it will take up to a month to take all the trees down.

And if you're ever in Gladstone, Missouri during the holidays, he says give him a call at Living Word Community Church. He'd be happy to give you a tour.
