Experts at Christmas Tree World revealed the exact date you should put your tree up this year.
Advent typically starts on the fourth Sunday before Christmas. This year, the first Sunday of Advent is December 3, 2023, making it the ideal time to begin your festivities.
Another popular choice for when to deck the halls is the slightly earlier date of December 1. Many households like to set up their tree and other festive decorations on the first day of the month to mark the start of the official countdown to the big day.
Those who wish to start the preparations early can always create a tradition and routine of their own. With the stresses of last-minute gift shopping, family visits and the dreaded food shop, it can be easy for popular traditions to slip away, especially during a cost-of-living crisis. In recent years, it has not been uncommon for families to get ahead and welcome the festive season early, with some setting up their trees as soon as Halloween is over.
If you’re thinking of getting a new tree this year, you may want to start looking around too. Christmas Tree World has the ideal range of artificial trees to suit all families’ needs. To recreate a “winter morning after snowfall” vibe this Christmas, The Snow White Fir is the perfect option.
The snow-covered tree is always a customer favourite, adding frosty magic to your otherwise cosy living room.
In addition, the 4ft Majestic Dew Pine Tree has perfect bushy branches and is ideal for Christmas lovers who like decorating their trees. This tree has been a long-standing favourite, providing a perfect contrasting background for colourful lights and decorations.
If you love Christmas, but prefer lightweight and timeless options, then The Slim Mixed Pine Tree is a good choice. This affordable Christmas tree can easily be set up and stored away, as its space-saving design also makes it suitable for smaller spaces.
