Deciding between a pre-lit Christmas tree or a real Christmas tree can be a tough decision. Ultimately it comes down to personal choice.
Real Christmas trees can be messy and leave a trail of needles throughout your home. If this doesn't bother you, then a real Christmas tree may be for you. If you don't like tree needles everywhere, then an artificial pre-lit tree may be the best choice.
Real Christmas trees have that fresh pine aroma that wafts through your home; pre-lit Christmas trees don't. You can try to emulate the smell with pine sprays on your artificial tree, but it just isn't the same. If you enjoy the smell of a fresh cut tree, then a live Christmas tree may be for you.
Pre-lit Christmas trees cut out all the work of setting up a tree and stringing lights. If you enjoy cutting a tree down, perhaps a live tree is a good choice.
For some people, it comes down to Christmas traditions. Many families enjoy going together to pick out a fresh tree, cutting it down and bringing it home to decorate. Many other families enjoy getting that pre-lit Christmas tree out of its storage spot, popping it up and plugging it in.
