Decorating for Christmas is half the fun of the holiday, the Christmas tree is always the centerpiece, followed by wreaths and garlands. Personally I think the smell of a fresh tree is best but it has it's drawbacks such as keeping it alive and fresh. Whereas the artificial trees are more convenient.
Than deciding on a theme each year or as most people do have a more personal general theme and add new decorations each year. Having a new theme each year would be very costly. But having a more personal family tree will make it a tradition which is what Christmas is all about, isn't it?
Whatever tree, fresh or fake, wishing you and yours a blessed, Merry Christmas !!
