Nov 4, 2007
The use of the Christmas tree began long ago in Europe, mainly in Germany. Gradually, the age-old tradition of a Christmas tree came to the United States where ornaments containing edible items such as candy, nuts, bits of fruit, and handmade cloth and paper decorations. The Christmas tree is now a universal symbol of Christ's birthday and brings about a message of hope, love, and peace to all.

A good old-fashioned Christmas tree will bring many fine memories of family holiday dinners and parties with friends and relatives. Today, people have the option of buying Fresh cut or synthetic Christmas trees. Initially, most people cannot readily cannot tell the difference between the two types of trees and each type of tree has its benefits. Both have that special magic and glow of festive and happy times, which contain memories people treasure.

Most of the retail stores display heavily decorated imitation Christmas trees during the holidays, so that it is a common sight for shoppers. The original artificial Christmas trees were created from dyed green bird feathers that were supposed to imitate a green fir tree. Presently, these synthetic trees are crafted from synthetic fire resistant materials, and are very realistic. Mainly,man-made trees were crafted for people who wanted to save time, money, and the energy of maintaining and cleaning up the needles of a real tree.

Purchasing an artificial Christmas tree is also a money-saver as it can be used repeatedly again by families for years to come.

There is no need to chop down a beautiful fir tree in the forest, when there are synthetic trees that look very similar. There are also so many styles and heights to select, such as heavy or flecked imitation white or even pink snow on the branches, evergreen, and many more types of trees.

Here are some of the reasons why a synthetic tree is best:

1. An artificial tree does not have to be watered daily.

2. Imitation trees can be used every year because they are easy to care for with no needle shedding to worry about.

3. These trees do not give allergic reactions and are treated so that they are flame resistant.

4. Some artificial trees are prelit, so the next step is to decorate the branches to personalize the tree.

5. The trees are so realistic that many people cannot discern the difference, and can be used indoors or outdoors.

6. Most of these trees can be assembled and taken apart easily for storage.

In sum, artificial trees can be a great bargain and a convenient way to go for the holidays.
