Artificial Christmas Trees Can Save Your Sanity

Aug 17, 2007
A prelit artificial Christmas tree can be the savior of your holiday season, with all you have to do at this festive time of year from attending office Christmas parties, buying the perfect Christmas gifts for each member of the family to planning your family holiday party, owning one of these trees can save you time and your sanity.

Of course, the greatest thing about getting one of these trees is that you'll also save money. Not to mention it is less likely to catch on fire. Unlike a fresh tree, an artificial tree is perfectly symmetrical, and this is an important point for some decorators, this is one more reason why it is preferred. The best part of purchasing this kind of tree is that the height isn't guessed, it is dead on. The artificial tree is advantageous as it makes transportation and replacement very easy.

The best time to order your tree is about 6 weeks before the yuletide season actually begins. These trees are not fire hazards because they are usually made of fire retardant material. This kind of tree is the perfect solution for anyone who wants to avoid a fight with an evergreen at any cost. The big fat round artificial tree is out and the slim artificial tree is in. Today's artificial Christmas tree is made to look just like a natural tree. One of the biggest pros to having this kind of tree is the convenience. An artificial Christmas tree is an investment that you'll want to protect so make sure that you pick a stand that can support it.

A custom made holiday tree is a useful, beautiful gift for a senior citizen, a December wedding, birthday or wedding anniversary. Buying one of these trees is similar to purchasing a real one. Unlike the real tree however; the artifical tree can be a lifetime investment, rather than a one time cost that comes around every year. Choosing between a natural and an artificial Christmas tree is first and foremost a matter of personal taste, space and budget. The aluminum artificial tree is great if you're after a retro-look. One of the big disadvantages of having an artificial Christmas tree is that they don't have the Christmas tree smell; however the advantages of the artificial Christmas tree can offset the lack of smell of the natural tree. One way to solve the lack of smell situation is to purchase pine air fresheners and strategically place them around the room in which you have your artificial tree.

Another advantage of your prelit Christmas tree is storage, it can be protected in plastic storage boxes that stack atop one another in a corner of the basement. When making your purchase make sure it is certified fire resistant. Another case for the artificial Christmas tree is that you can buy a prelit artificial tree or even one with fiber optic lighting. Whether or not to use an artificial tree can be a hotly debated topic in your household during the holidays.

To lengthen the life of the bulbs use extra household extension cords to plug in each separate section of your prelit tree. This year, I am investing in a prelit tree to save my sanity. These trees are a great choice, especially when you're pushed for time during the busy holiday season. After struggling with wires and outlets for a couple of hours I decided that it was time for me to invest in a prelit artificial tree. As stated earlier, when you do get a prelit artificial Christmas Tree, you should take a great bit of care in picking it. These trees can instantly brings festive cheer to your home. Unlike the natural Christmas tree, the prelit artificial Christmas tree doesn't require extra work once you have it put up.

The only question remaining now is, which artificial Christmas tree is right for you? Well only you can answer that, but keep the following in mind, your budget and the size of the space in which you are going to erect your new family treasure.
With these trees coming in so many sizes and lighting capabilities from fiber optic lit to traditional lit it should be easy for you to find one that fits your taste and expectations.
