Laziness, or is it convenience? Well either way, first there was the real Christmas tree in all it’s needle shedding, sappy, but none the less very Christmassy glory. Next was the artificial tree, with all the benefits of a real tree minus the mess. Now for those whose time a precious, or who simply don’t wish to make a big thing out of decorating their tree there is the fibre optic Christmas tree, with it’s integrated fibre optic ‘leaves’, it really is simply a matter of ‘plug and play’.
Ok so granted this probably isn’t going to replace the tradition of a properly decorated Christmas tree for many people, especially families with young children, but this could prove to be invaluable for older people who do not have the time and energy to commit to a ‘proper’ tree, but who none the less enjoy the tradition and the spectacle. If this sounds like you then this would seriously be worth considering. What’s more of course, at only 45cm in height this item is a manageable size, so for example, for someone who lives on their own, carrying a large tree down from the attic simple may not be an option, and this may be a more realistic alternative.
