Putting up your Christmas tree marks the transition from fall to the holiday season, but just like post-gift unwrapping, real Christmas trees can be messy. Plus, you have to make sure to take care of it from the day you put it up until you decide to take the tree down. If you’re short on time and energy this year, an artificial Christmas tree is the way to go — and you’ll be able to reuse it for years to come.
