Christmas time is here, and this year, maybe more than any other, we could all use a little (or a lot) of Christmas cheer. Maybe you've already started decorating, maybe you're waiting until after Thanksgiving, or a couple of weeks before Christmas to start getting your decorations out of storage and up in the house. Whenever you get to it, the centerpiece of all Christmas décor is the tree. Artificial trees are a popular choice thanks to the fact their relatively easy to set up, they don't dry out and lose their needles, and if there's a bare spot, you can just bend the "limbs" to fill it. With that said, there is something to be said about having a real tree. Sure, you have to keep them watered so they don't dry out over the course of the season, but real trees have one thing artificial trees don't, that unmistakable pine smell. The good news is, if you're in the real tree camp, there are several tree farms and Boy Scout troops here in the Tri-State that will gladly sell you one in any size you need.
