Ariel Winter may be celebrating her 23rd birthday on the outside, but she is definitely still feeling the Christmas spirit in her heart, as evidenced by her Christmas tree that is still up weeks past the accepted grace period of keeping a giant dying tree in your living room. The former “Modern Family” star took to Instagram late Thursday evening as she wrapped up a day of birthday shenanigans and shared some photos of how she celebrated with those she loves.
23-year-old Ariel Winter was feeling the love while revealing some photos of how she spent her special day.
“23 and feeling loved & grateful?” the actress captioned her photo drop, which included shots of a balcony picnic with boyfriend Luke Benward, and some snuggling with her puppy.
Ariel also flaunted her birthday balloons, but it was hard to hide the sad wilting Christmas tree in the background of her shot.
“So…nobody’s going to mention the tree? ?? okay.. Happy Birthday darlin'” one fan joked in the comments section.
It was a little over a month ago when Ariel Winter’s Christmas tree was looking lush and beautiful while being featured in the star’s social media holiday pic.
Ariel’s tree has clearly lasted long past its expiration date and is in long need of a wood chipper. Most trash companies give a 2-week period after Christmas to get rid of the tree, which is about the time it begins to leave a pile of pine needles that are still showing up when the holiday rolls around the following year.
It did not take long for others to notice Ariel Winter’s sad holiday tree and brought it up in the comments section of her Instagram post.
“Happy birthday! Ps, its time to put the Christmas tree away..” one user wrote.
“Let’s talk about the Xmas tree still up lol happy birthday,” a second person commented.
“Take your Christmas stuff down,” another person bluntly stated.
It’s unclear if Ariel will take notice of the response to her Christmas tree, but she has yet to respond to the critics.
