Now that Thanksgiving has passed, it is now acceptable to begin Christmas decorating. From Christmas lights to Nativity scenes, there is always an interesting variety of Christmas decorations to take a gander at. However,  one decoration that is set up by almost everyone is the Christmas tree. I used to HATE putting up the Christmas tree. Mainly because my mom used a fake tree that we had to assemble  BRANCH BY BRANCH! It had the musky smell of attic, took over an hour to assemble, and I always got a weird film of dust on my fingers. My mom always tried to make it fun by making hot chocolate (even though it was always 80+ degrees in South Texas), or playing Christmas music, but it’s a tradition I’ve come to loathe. I would always ask my mom, “why don’t we just get a real tree?!” Her usual response was that they were too expensive. After reading today’s infographic, I’m glad she never caved into my whining for a new tree. Today’s interesting  infographic is about the different critters that can potentially infiltrate your house when you take home a real Christmas tree. Bringing home a live tree is like inviting all the outdoor insects into your house for some  hot chocolate and eggnog. Don’t let today’s infographic put a damper on your Christmas spirit! [via]

    This is total bunk. I’ve worked with live Christmas trees my whole life and never found one bug. This is just a way to scare uninformed people into buying artificial trees, when having a live tree in your home adds something special to the holidays. I don’t know about live Christmas trees in other parts of the country, but in North Carolina, Christmas trees, especially fraser firs, do not contain bugs.
