When To Put Up The Christmas Tree-Are We Putting Our Christmas Trees Up The Right Time

Non-Drop Christmas Trees

 

Before you know when to put your Christmas tree up you should know more about choosing the right tree, for all of you who prefer a real tree you want to choose a non-drop needle tree. These trees keep their needles the longest after being cut down, these are your best trees to choose to avoid the mess of needles falling all over your home. I prefer a real tree compared to the artificial trees, even though many of the artificial trees are very real appearing they do not provide the pleasant scent like a real tree. The Christmas wreath also is available made from a real tree or you can buy yourself an artificial Christmas wreath as well.

Saint Nicholas And Scrooge

 

It is ironic how we have Saint Nicolas and the scrooge which has been popular and lasted from generation to generation, wonder what Christmas would be like if this kind wealthy bishop has not started helping the needy with gifts and candy so long ago? You know more people know the scrooge and his bah humbug for Christmas than people know the true story of Saint Nicholas. Would not the world be a much better place if the wealthy today followed Saint Nicholas as an example and used some of their wealth to help the needy. If the wealthy did do this there would be less people suffering from anxiety and depression during the holidays, many parents become anxious and depressed preparing for the Christmas holiday. Many parents are not able to give their children the things they desire for Christmas, even with two people working full-time many families struggle during the holidays.

What Is On My Mind Today?

 

The true meaning of Christmas is being lost by our holidays being too commercialized, many of the young people think of Christmas as a time of the year they get gifts. They should be connecting this holiday with giving, especially to the needy. We should be more giving all year round not just during the Christmas holiday season, this is the time of the year many charities receive the majority of their yearly donations. Many people only attend church services during Christmas and Easter, our society is becoming greedy and we are losing our passion to help others in need with each generation.
