I absolutely do not agree with Travis G. on his opinion of “keeping your Christmas tree and throwing a bed sheet over it.” Sorry but I definitely would not enjoy a big cone in my house shedding needles all year. It would just look so awkward. And the whole “it provides a home for spiders,” No, no spiders are making a home in my home. And once again I go against his opinion on the spider webs adding decoration. Usually people try to get rid of the webs. And here is my answer to â€˜why take the tree down?’…it’s going to be dead by next year any wase.
