The Truth About Modern Pre-Lit Christmas Trees


With the holiday season rapidly approaching, it is time to think about putting up our Christmas tree and decorating the home – inside and out – for Christmas. What used to be a tradition is slowing becoming non-existent, which is the time we spend decorating the Christmas tree with lights and ornaments. Today, more and more people are leaning towards the pre-lit Christmas trees for numerous reasons, as outlined below:

• Pre-Installed Lights – The stress of getting your Christmas tree up and then dangling lights in just the right places for the tree to look like a work of art can be overwhelming for many individuals. However, with pre-lit Christmas trees, this stress and anxiety is void plus you will be saving time and effort. It’s a great choice for those that artistically challenged and find it difficult to get the lights in the right places and it is even better for those that only have a short amount pof time to get that one important Christmas decoration up.

• No Assembly – While a Christmas tree is extremely nice to have in your home during the holiday season, many simply don’t have because of the hassle that is involved in setting one up or simply don’t have enough time to deal with it regardless of how traditional it may be. With modern pre-lit Christmas trees, there is no assembly – just a quick and easy setup. You can easily save a couple of hours of setup!

• Longevity, No Smell, No Pine Needles – The life of modern pre-lit Christmas trees are years. With a tree from your local Christmas tree farm, your tree will barely last through Christmas before it starts to die and most certainly lose pine needles and overwhelm your home with a fresh pine smell. While many enjoy the pine smell, it can become overpowering at times. In the long run, a modern pre-lit Christmas tree is going to save you hundreds of dollars. A living tree is going to cost more than a false one, you can bet on that at minimum, whereas a modern pre-lit can be purchased for approximately between £40-£200 depending on how elaborate of detail you would like and last for at least five years. That means you will only purchase a tree once rather than each year.

The above-mentioned benefits of modern pre-list Christmas trees will not let you have as much customisation as a normal tree would that you would be require to place your own lights on; however, for many, that’s okay.

How to Get Your House to Stand Out From the Rest

At Christmastime, it isn’t always about the tree inside the home and is sometimes about the decorations that are in your yard. If you want as spectacular looking home that stands out from the rest of the homes in the neighbourhood then you must go beyond traditional lighting. You can purchase a blow-up Santa and other decorative items at high street shops or you can build a miniature barn in your front yard and create a beautiful nativity scene inside.

The thing with making your home different is by creating an original aspect. Go as little – from just a few decorations here and there that stand out because they are big and/or bright – or as big – creating an entire Toy Factory, North Pole or Santa’s Land in your front garden– as you’d like, just know that it is fun, fulfilling and breathtaking.
