Because it’s too cold to stand outside trying to find a real tree for Christmas. Plus, they die. We’re all in for these realistic looking (yet fake) Christmas trees on sale this merry holiday season. Humbug!
We love Christmas just as much (or little) as the next person, but nothing drives us crazier than the pageantry around buying a real Christmas tree every year. Sure they smell great (when you’re not constantly sneezing) and they look great (when you’re not trying to see if those bugs on your ceiling are actually coming from the tree), but there’s something about shelling out upwards of $70 – $120 every year for something that’ll be up for a couple weeks and then, literally, thrown away. We know we sound like a Grinch, but we’re ok with that. Plus, we’re not totally on-board (yet) with having Amazon deliver real live Christmas trees to our door in a box! This year it’s really all about finding a real-looking artificial (read: fake) Christmas tree that suits all our needs. We’ve selected some of the best-selling ‘fake’ Christmas trees that cover the most major categories that people are looking for: Best overall, pre-lit with clear lights, pre-lit with multi-colored lights and, well, the cheap tree.
