Thirty Days of Gratitude: Artificial Trees

It sounds ridiculous to be grateful for artificial (FAKE) trees, but I am serious. If I didn't have my fake Christmas trees, I would not have my Christmas trees up, decorated, and warming my house with all the cheer entailed in that. Some people might buy their tree this early, but I never have, and this year is just not my year for spending money on anything frivolous. It has been a big blessing to have a couple of these lovely things in my storage to use each year. So maybe I am also grateful for a tight pocketbook for it guided me to see how much abundance I enjoy--even in the fake Christmas tree area.

  3. Hello Everybody,

    Getting a fake tree, is the most economical since you can buy one tree and use the same tree for years. But when you eventually get rid of the tree, it is not as easy to dispose of the tree as it is not biodegradable. Getting a real tree is better for the environment than getting a fake tree because fake trees are made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) which causes pollution when produced and is also hard to recycle. Lead can also be found in PVC so it may not be good to have this exposure for children.

    Best Wishes
