A Christmas tree is an evergreen tree, usually a pine or fir, that is decked with lights and ornaments as part of the holiday season. While the trees have long been associated with Christian symbolism, they are now primarily used for secular purposes. Many families wrap gifts around an indoor Christmas tree and open them on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day
• Don't allow your potted tree to dry.
• When you get your tree home, don't bring it inside right away. Instead, acclimatize it to the warmer air by storing it in a garage or shed.
• Keep your tree in a waterproof container and only water it with cold water to keep the roots cool and moist
