Things to Consider When Choosing Your Christmas Tree
By Rob Buenaventura
As the holidays approach, Iím sure you are quickly preparing to choose your Christmas tree for the season. Choosing a Christmas tree today isnítí nearly as easy as it was when we were children. There is a seemingly endless selection of available trees that make the decision of which tree alone difficult enough. Today, there are companies that exist solely for the purpose of growing Christmas trees. These companies have discovered that there is such a large market for Christmas threes and other Christmas items that they can sustain their families year round on the earnings of the Christmas season. This of course allows them the time to care for and grow more trees for the next Christmas season.
Some opt to purchase an artificial tree that can be used year after year. There are some benefits in doing this. The first one being that there are no worries over disposal. Second (well first for me) is the fact that you will not find a mountain of needles stuck in your carpet next August. Third is the fact that the same tree can be purchased once and used year after year. When you look at them this way, artificial trees are very cost effective.
The thing to remember when selecting your tree is that you need to find the three that is right for you and your family rather than buying a tree to compete with the neighbors, cousins, brothers, or monkeyís uncles. It is your home the tree needs to compliment and your family it needs to inspire. Here are some tips for finding the perfect Christmas tree.
1) How much room is there in your home for a tree? Is your space over cluttered with furniture? Do you have low ceilings? High ceilings? How much floor space can you really spare?
2) What is your budget? This is the deciding factor for many families. Not only do you need a tree but also the decorations to go on it.
3) How important is the tree really? Not all families place as much emphasis on the Christmas tree as others if you have small children itís almost a must, however if your children or grown and gone or you do not yet have children, you could easily opt out of a Christmas tree or decide to go with a very small Christmas tree.
Deciding these things can go a long way towards helping you decide your specific needs for your Christmas tree. Whether you tend to go light on tree, heavy on presents, or go all out for both, or decorate massively while limiting your giving. Whichever choice works best for you and your family is the choice you should make concerning your Christmas tree purchase. The important thing to remember is that no Christmas tree is complete without decorations. So be sure you leave a little room in the budget for ornaments and lights as well.
