10 Christmas tree alternatives


O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
Thy leaves are so unchanging

What kind of tree are you getting this year? Are you going for a natural one, or do you have an artificial one? Although I love the smell of a pine tree, and the experience of picking the perfect tree, I’m not such a fan of the whole needle shedding. Nonetheless, I know I will be getting a real one again. But for those who want to keep their house clean, or just want a second tree to deck the halls in an alternative way, I selected ten alternative Christmas trees.

I guess there are more people with ladder love besides me. If you are up for something artsy and simple this might be it.

It may be hard to picture, but in some parts of the world Christmas is celebrated in tropical temperatures. So why not incorporate beach elements in your tree?
