Still need to put up your Christmas tree?

There are two types of people: those who put up their Christmas tree in the first week of November, and those who put it up in the first week of December.

Actually, that can be extended to those who take their tree down during the gap between Christmas and New Year, and those who leave it up until waaaay past February. Hey, we’re not judging!


If you’re a Christmas tree advocate, you probably like to use the latest and greatest Chrissie decorations to ensure your tree perfectly matches the rest of your beautiful home.
