5 Things You Didn’t Know About Christmas Trees

Hello!

So I haven’t posted anything yet that’s Christmas themed however I’m in the midst of writing three assignments so forgive me if this post is a little brief! Nevertheless here are 5 things you didn’t know about Christmas trees!

Number 1: Christmas trees are grown for 7 years on average before being cut down

Number 2: You can rent a christmas tree! If you want a greener option you can buy a living tree and rent it for the holidays and then give it back!

Number 3: Evergreen trees became the most popular christmas tree variety because they represented fertility and life.

Number 4: Christmas trees used to be decorated with real on fire candles! As you can imagine this was a huge fire risk and caused a lot of damage particularly in the victorian era.

Number 5: Around 8 million christmas trees are sold every year in the UK

Hope you’re getting into the festive spirit wherever you are! To finish here is a picture of my christmas tree!

Merry Christmas!
