Top Tips For Finding Your Christmas Tree
Christmas season is almost here again. It seems like just yesterday when we celebrated the last one, now we can hear the sounds of Christmas songs coming from every corner. Santa's pretty much gathering his reindeer and the elves are at work again. Christmas season calls for decorations, lights, statues and decorations and of course the piece that tops it all up, The Christmas tree. This year I'm done with the hassle of searching for real trees that are the right size. I'm cutting down on the stress and settling in for an artificial Christmas tree.
The whole point of the Christmas tree seems to be lost somewhere in history. Some people even say it was the pagans who came up with the idea. But whatever the origin, every year, people try to outdo each other with the best tree possible. I prefer to avoid the stress this year by getting an artificial Christmas tree; sometimes it’s hard to explain why I would choose an artificial Christmas tree over a real one. But I have my reasons.
Well my first sets of reasons are simple, call me a shylock but I think real trees are way too expensive. You have them up by the middle of November or so and they're out by December or January depending on how nostalgic you are. An artificial Christmas tree on the other hand comes at a much cheaper cost.
This of course doesn't include the fact that with an artificial Christmas tree you can choose whatever color you like.
My second sets of reasons are more practical. When you buy an artificial Christmas tree you don't have to worry about cleaning the mess up when you're done with the holiday because there's simply no mess. An artificial Christmas tree is not a fire hazard. They don't catch fire especially with all the Christmas fires over the house.
My third secret and most selfish reason is you don't have to throw an Artificial Christmas tree away after Christmas. You can reuse your artificial Christmas tree next year if you want to. Call me a miser but I think it’s a great way to save in a potentially spendthrift season. You can find a great artificial Christmas tree at your local Wal Mart or Home Depot store. There's a wide choice of Christmas trees available at these stores. Of course if you are as lazy as I am you can buy an artificial Christmas tree off the Internet, perhaps you could even find a used artificial Christmas tree on eBay. Just kidding, but there’s a whole lot of online stores each with an Artificial Christmas tree of your choice, just search Google or Yahoo.
