What kind of tree do you have?
Personally I have an artificial tree, but I do know many folks that have "real" trees. Some of those with "real" trees are cut trees, others have "balled" trees so that they can replant them after the season. We did have one of those balled trees years and years ago and replanted it. One of the things I didn't like about that was that we had to get it into the ground much too early for me. It was within days of Christmas, as I remember, so we didn't get to enjoy our Christmas tree. Oh and unfortunately I don't think it lasted more than a few years. Perhaps that was because we live in the Northeast.
One of the things I found interesting though, is that we really aren't alone or different in getting an artificial tree.
The folks at TreeClassics shared some interesting graphics with me. Since they are celebrating their 40th year I would think they have some idea what they are talking about.
I bought my last tree online and couldn't be happier with it. I had replaced my "original" tree after ... are you ready? ... 33 years! I had originally purchased that tree from a Home Improvement Store after Christmas when they had decent things remaining after Christmas.
If you are thinking about doing an artificial tree this year, or if you have taken your last years tree out of the closet and think it should have been replaced ... check out TreeClassics.com. If you remember, they sponsored one of my giveaways here.
Just to add a little more frivolity to the post, check out Santa.
Merry Christmas to all ...
