When I was little, I remember an occassional Christmas here and there having a real Christmas tree. My dad would go with us to get the tree and tie it to our car roof and bringing it home. I also remember the crazy with having a real tree. I remember stepping on needles if I forgot to wear my slippers. I also remember my dad cursing while having to get under the tree to water it so it wouldn’t dry out and catch on fire. We also ended up breaking a few vacuums trying to get all the needles up after dragging it to the curb.
It was nice to have a real tree smells, but it was not worth it with all the problems my mom and dad had just to have a real one.
So, with those memories, I’m perfectly happy to have a fake tree these days. I love how you can control the size, how easy it is to store them, and you can even get one that comes with the lights. I also like the fact that I’m saving some trees at the same time!
With that, I would like to share with you 24 times it’s better to “fake it”:
