An Artificial Christmas Tree has it's Place
Although nothing beats a fresh Christmas tree, with its fragrant pine-needle scent, there are several valid reasons why an
artificial Christmas tree makes sense in certain situations. Have you ever noticed some artificial Christmas
trees are so realistic, you have to get quite close to tell the difference. If you're a veteran at Christmas decorations every year like me, you know some of the disadvantages of the real thing, beautiful and
fragrant as it may be. Let's look at some of the reasons you might favor an artificial tree.
If you live in the city and have an apartment or condo on the third floor, it requires considerable effort to purchase, transport
and install the tree before you ever start Christmas decorating for the home.
Grandma and Grandpa may just not have the energy for the running around and muscling the tree in place. Getting the tree in your
home and setting it up can be hard work. Read about a balsam Christmas tree to find out.
Even if you're physically up to it, you may simply not have the time. Sometimes an artificial Christmas tree just makes good
sense in your situation.
It's fun to let children have their own small Christmas tree in their room – they love gazing at the lights at night, with dreams
of sugar plums in their heads. On the other hand, many parents worry about fire danger from a tree that's too dry. An artificial Christmas tree
resolves this worry.
Perhaps you want a white Christmas tree, to suit your taste or color scheme. Fresh trees do not come in white. Artificial
Christmas trees do!
Unlike a fresh tree, an artificial Christmas tree is perfectly symmetrical, and this is an important point for some decorators.
An artificial Christmas tree lasts for many years and may simply be stored away out of season, in a relatively small space. Most come in
sections, easily and quickly fitted together when you're ready to decorate.
To make up for the lack of that fresh tree fragrance, try using bowls of potpourri in strategic locations. You can even purchase
spray scents that simulate fresh pine. A simmering pot of apple cider on the stove with cloves and sticks of cinnamon creates a heavenly
fragrance all around the house.
If you've got your heart set on genuine fresh pine scent, gather or purchase pine branches to make into a garland for the
fireplace or stair railing.
Probably one of the best reasons for an artificial tree is cleanup after the holidays are over, especially when New
Year's eve is done. After getting entangled in xmas lights, poked by dry sharp needles and smeared with sap in your hair and skin,
you may opt for the a Prelit Artificial Christmas Tree next year!
