In Place of a Christmas Tree

Because artificial Christmas trees are made with PVC plastic and because real Christmas trees are sprayed with pesticides, neither of which we wanted to bring inside our home, my wife and I decided to forgo purchasing a Christmas tree and to decorate our mantle this year. Finding an organic Christmas tree might have been an option if we could have found one and if we could have afforded one once we located it. We think that the alternative worked out quite well. Saving money on not having a tree is an added plus.
