Really? I had no idea that was a thing. Are they still decorating them / putting lights? Sound like a lot of work for a day
Thanks OP, bought 25!

I thought they give them away on the 26th. How thoughtful of the Weston’s.

Yup. Basically a good amount of the day was just the tree: ornaments, lights, etc. Decorating outside was done beginning December.

Most of my relatives in Europe put their REAL tree up on Dec 24th, and don't use lights, they use CANDLES!? Yes, real candles. All the ornaments are straw or paper based. You basically have a powder keg lit in your living room....

All that said, the BEST part growing up was we opened ALL our gifts at night on Dec 24th. I NEVER went to bed 'waiting for Santa', he just arrived while I was at my grandfathers home opening gifts there.

The Christian tradition (it is Christmas we’re talking about after all) is to keep the tree up until 5 January. That’s the twelfth day of Christmas. So yes, it should be down by the 6th.

I find it ignorant that some Canadian stores do “twelve days of Christmas” sales randomly in December, way before Christmas has even began.

There is not much actual Christmas left, everything has gotten too commercialized.

since this is a real tree, people should go and get one. the scent is good for you and for those looking at making essential oil, this is perfect. great for muscle aches

Because Christmas, like everything else, is so commercialised.

Is this legit? I thought essential oils were a scam that stay-at-home moms try to sell to you at Tupperware party's.

There has been a lot of scammy pyramid scheme style business with Essential Oils.

Do they actually work? I for one enjoy eucalyptus oil in my humidifier when I'm congested. As for other oils, people seem convinced that it helps them, might be placebo

It's basic aroma therapy stuff. There's lots of placebo type benefits (which aren't inherently bad, if something helps you because you think it'll help you, you've still been helped), but there are also some real benefits. Still, theres a TON of pseudoscience and outright lies being spread about it.

Basically, if the cost is small, and you feel it helps you, go for it. But don't fall for all the BS around it.
