Shedding Light on Falling Needles Family Fest Β©

Welcome, to the wild world of Falling Needles Family Fest Β©! Today we’re talking about a holiday that is sure to bring some green into your life and might even get under your skin – both literally and metaphorically.
If you’re tired of the same old holiday cheer and want to spice things up with a little bit of danger, then this is the event for you.
All you need is the very traditional holiday decoration of a beautifully decorated dying tree that is ready to give you some surprise-acupuncture! That’s right, we’re talking about Christmas trees!
But before we dive into the festivities, let’s talk about something serious – the care that live Christmas trees need.

The Needles are Falling: Why Do Christmas Trees Shed?

Let’s face it, nothing ruins the festive mood more than a Christmas tree shedding its needles all over your floor. As much as we love the fresh pine scent and the beauty of a live Christmas tree, it can be a real pain when those needles start to cover the floor.
But why do they do it? As it turns out, it’s not just a sign of old age or poor health.
When Christmas trees are harvested, they go through a lot of stress and shock, which can cause them to lose their needles.
Christmas trees, like all living things, need proper care to thrive. If a tree is not given enough water, for example, it will start to dry out and shed needles.
Other factors that can cause needle loss include temperature fluctuations, pests, and disease.
To prevent your piney pal from shedding needles, it’s important to take good care of it. Make sure it has enough water and keep it away from heat sources like fireplaces and radiators.
But, if you’re not up for the challenge, fake trees are always an option. They may not have that fresh pine smell, but they also won’t be shedding needles all over your floor. They also come in different sizes and styles, making it easier to find one that suits your taste.

Real vs Fake Christmas Trees

Real trees are biodegradable and have that lovely pine scent and can be a fun activity to pick out and decorate. They’re grown specifically for the purpose of being cut down and are biodegradable.
But real trees require more maintenance and are often more expensive, are often treated with pesticides and preservatives and cause pollution every time they are transported using fossil fuels..

Fake trees, on the other hand, are cheaper, don’t shed needles and can be reused year after year, potentially saving you money in the long run.
But fake trees are made of plastic, will eventually end up in a landfill and don’t have that same natural look and smell.

It’s up to you to decide which option is best for you. In a sense it is almost impossible to find a tree that will not cause any pollution at all.
But no matter what you choose, remember to treat your tree with care and respect.

  • If you have pets, keep them away from Christmas trees and decorations as they can be dangerous if ingested.
  • And remember to take breaks and do simple exercises and perky dances to keep your body moving throughout the celebration.
  • Also, if you have pets or young children, be sure to keep them away from any potential hazards and make sure they’re safe and comfortable throughout the festivities.
