Christmas trees are a staple of the holiday season. There are real trees, and artificial trees. Which you choose is simply a matter of preference. Some people enjoy the convenience of an artificial tree, while others love the traditional look and feel of the real thing. Regardless of what kind of tree you prefer, you’ll need to decorate it!
