Remember the Visigoth?

So last weekend I broke down and undecorated the Christmas tree even though I didn't actually want to take it down this year.  Generally I'm antsy to get my living room back, but this year I really enjoyed our tree.  But it was past 12th Night, I needed my living room back in order to measure for a new sofa, and the tree had stopped taking water.

I don't suppose anyone around here knows anything about how this happened?
