Real Christmas trees
versus artificial trees ...
Real Christmas trees are beautiful but they have all kinds of disadvantages, especially
when it comes to cleaning up after the holidays. On the other hand they suit the
person who is the traditionalist at heart. The artificial
indoor tree is a much more efficient and tidier option and they
have their own tradition as being part of the post-modern era of
interior design. When it comes to Christmas trees,
the artificial indoor tree is becoming a much more sought after
item as they are especially convenient for individuals who have
limited space or simply do not like pine needles shedding all
over the carpet. So which type of xmas tree is best for
Both types of Christmas trees have their
advantages and disadvantages. Real christmas trees post a
fire hazard because Christmas lights can get too hot and light
the branches on fire. They also shed needles and require
watering. Although the artificial indoor tree does not
have these problems, they lack the natural fragrance that is
emitted by evergreen needles. Also it is somehow less
spirited to have your family visiting a variety of Christmas
tree stores to pick out an artificial tree rather than have them
planning an outing to chop down a real one.
Obviously the artificial indoor tree is the
best option if you prefer a low-maintenance Christmas.
Also there are scores of Christmas tree stores both offline and
online that specialize in selling the prettiest new versions of
these Christmas trees. However if you love the high
maintenance associated with a real tree then by all means
consider the many rituals associated with taking care of a
freshly cut evergreen to be part of your family tradition.
