When one thinks of Christmas, one often conjures up images of decorated trees garnished with bright lights, garlands, and ornaments. These festive symbols of the Christmas holiday can be real or artificial. People are usually pretty serious about their Christmas trees, whether they prefer to buy a real one off a lot or cut it down themselves, or buy a pre-decorated tree at the store.
Real Christmas trees are usually pines or Douglas firs, but there are many varieties to choose from, such as white spruce, noble fir, and evergreen. They go hand in hand with the Christmas (Xmas for short) holidays, appearing in homes as early as November. Synonymous with the Christian faith, Christmas trees help the young and old celebrate the spirit of the season.
You see them in stores, lining downtown streets, in homes, and in business offices. They typically feature lots of homemade and store-bought ornaments, garlands, icicles, twinkling lights, and a star or angel at the top. They are placed in stands to give them support and height. Some people flock their Christmas tree to give it an added dimension. This involves spraying the tree with artificial snow, usually made up of cellulose, water, and a spray adhesive.
Christmas trees can be found at lots, home improvement stores, and farms. Christmas tree farmers grow their own trees and holiday goers choose their favorite, and chop it down themselves. Lots, farms, and stores often sell related holiday items such as wreaths and decor items, in addition to full selections of short and tall noble firs and pines.
To find Christmas tree lots, all you have to do is drive around. Chances are, there are seasonal lots set up in your downtown area. You can also visit a home improvement store to find that perfect tree for your holiday season.
Christmas trees are the most traditional and popular symbols of the Christmas holiday. People get into the Christmas spirit by decorating their trees with colored or white lights. They also adorn the tree with ornaments, tinsel and usually and angel or a star to perch on the top if it. Some people also use extra tree trimmings to decorate their house. Christmas trees that are freshly cut, give off an aromatic and woodsy scent. Real Christmas trees can become a mess and a fire hazard in your home when their needles are dried, brown and falling off. However, artificial trees are a convenient and cleaner way to decorate you house for Christmas. Pre-decorated, pre-lit and artificial trees are generally easy to set up. There are many varieties of fake Christmas trees to suit your style and taste. They are also many different kinds of real Christmas trees.

Real Christmas trees can be quite expensive, that is why many invest in artificial trees year after year. So always consider your budget, especially because it is around Christmas time, and money can be tight. Christmas trees are almost always found with a sea of presents below them.
