It’s officially the most beautiful time of the year! Christmas time is now and we are all about to embrace the festivities. This means baking sugar cookies, singing Christmas carols, and of course, decorating the Christmas tree.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve always gone for a real Christmas tree. Growing up in Vermont is exactly what you do. For years my family and I would go into the woods and cut our own tree. And there is definitely a science to choosing the perfect Christmas tree.
You want something that will fit the room you place it in and that means leaving room for the tree stand as well as the star / angel. Then you want a tree that has the proper conical shape and you want one that has a good density of branches – no big holes! From there, the health of the tree is imperative. It is natural that a few needles will fall out when you touch a branch, but if it is raining needles, this tree will not last until Christmas. Finally, make sure nothing is living inside the tree, otherwise this creature will live with you.
