Christmas Tree Decisions
By Michael Cadwell
Fake or real is a question jingling through the minds of many getting ready to celebrate Christmas this year. Going and cutting down a Christmas tree is a tradition for most families. Other families choose a different, easier route in just buying a fake tree. This decision can be a hard choice for traditional Christmas tree buyers. My family has bought a real tree since I’ve been born. Even though my sister loves the experience of going as a family to chop down the tree, I take the other side (some might call lazy) and just say buy a artificial tree. If you think about it, buying one will save the average family some money long term. They’ll never have to worry if their tree will fit in the space it goes. Lastly, families save the hassle of chopping it down, transporting it to their house and having to mess with all the spikes. If cutting down a real tree is family tradition, I totally understand. Keep in mind though that Christmas is not
any less with an artificial or a real tree; it’s the people you spend Christmas with that matter the most.
