One of the most iconic and memorable Christmas tree moments is from the movie National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
A Chicago-area resident, Clark Griswold, wanted to have an amazing and joyous Christmas with his family. So much so that he drove his wife, son, and daughter out to the country to find a tree. After walking for innumerable amount of hours in the snow and freezing cold, to the point that Clark’s daughter’s eyes had ice around them, he picked out the largest tree he could find that was shining, glistening, and glowing in his interpretation.
While there are countless ways to get into the holiday spirit, including listening to classic Christmas songs, especially Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas”, baking delectable holiday treats, marveling at dazzling Christmas lights, or watching traditional Christmas movies, decorating your Christmas tree will surely bring you joy, as well as put you in the best holiday cheer. Everyone has their own style, ideas, and opinions on ways they want to decorate their tree. Decorating the tree is the perfect time to incorporate a little twinkle and sparkle regardless of the theme and trend you decide.
Real tree vs. artificial…
Beyond decorating the tree, you may be grappling with deciding whether to have a real tree or an artificial one. It will all come down to your personal preference. A real tree will add a neutral scent, is easily recycled, supports local vendors, and creates family fun while choosing the tree to purchase. An artificial tree can be reused and help with budgeting, offers no mess and no maintenance, such as watering, sweeping, and trimming, and reduces fire risks. Hopefully, this helps you weigh your options.
Whether you gravitate towards a real tree or an artificial tree, designing and transforming your tree is one of the best parts of the holiday season. It allows you to be creative.
