How to Pick the Right Christmas tree ever? – Black Friday Guide
- First, you’ve to consider what kind of tree you want this Christmas? If you’ve have children at home then it would be better to pick pines or firs with soft needles instead of spruce trees. These soft needles are quite sharp and could hurt children while playing.
- Once you decides, do a freshness test by bending a needle in half with your fingers, fresh firs should snap but fresh pines bend, not break!
- Since you will be shopping for Christmas tree long before the Christmas so it would be smart to check if the needles are secure. For longevity check, gently grab the inside of a branch and pull your hand toward you. If a single needle falls then it is fine but if lots of fall then you should look for different tree.
- Check for the size. You don’t want to end up paying for a tree which can’t pass the front door of your home.
