I do not regularly get a Christmas tree for a few reasons. 1) I have a one bedroom condo and it takes about 10 minutes to get from the front gate to my actual place. 2) I have no significant other and I have no children and 3) I hate the mess that a Christmas tree brings with itself. After doing a little research (see below), I may break tradition and pony up for one this year.
