Finding the Best Christmas Tree and Keeping It

With Christmas less than two weeks away, many of you probably already have your Christmas trees. So for those of you who do or don't there are a number of ways to pick the best one, or keep up the one you already have.

If you are looking for a tree, you want to make sure it has been in plenty of water and is hydrated. You can check for this by running your hand through a tree limb, and the fewer needles that fall off the better. Christmas tree officials say that there are a number of myths about what to feed your tree once you have it at home, but really all you need is water.

You can also bend a Christmas tree needle, if it bends, its healthy, if the needle snaps, your tree needs more water.
