To be honest – I’ve never had the desire to have a real Christmas tree. We’ve had our Christmas tree in our family for 20 years, and it still looks AMAZING. Not only does it have a sentimental value, it’s been cheaper for us in the long run and make’s life slightly easier for me.
Our artificial tree is the easy upkeep I need in my life. I already have to feed two tiny humans, a cat, and a dog daily; so why do I need the added stress of watering a tree.
Keeping on the lazy note – some artificial trees come pre-lit! No need to spend time wrapping lights around your tree and trying to get the perfect space between each string. I’m also busy enough as is trying to schedule in appointments on the weekends, shopping for gifts and birthday parties. I don’t need to take time to try and find the “perfect” tree.
Slightly Less Disastrous
When Jax was a crawling baby we lived in an apartment; alongside with my dog and cat. Wanting to avoid any disasters from an accident prone baby who liked to play in water, and a plant eating cat – I bought a small artificial tree to fit on top of my dresser just big enough for the Christmas season feeling. The last thing I needed was to clean up animal puke from eating the tree or Jaxon getting into the water. We absolutely have no room in our upstairs house to keep a real tree away from the cat after converting our extra space into a play area for the kids. I am also 99% sure our Pit Bull would be drawn to a real tree and would continuously try to eat the wood or pines downstairs. That dog sure loves anything wood.
