For many of us, a Christmas tree is something that’s normally reserved for the month of December. At the earliest, we put ours up and decorate it the weekend after Thanksgiving. But a good Christmas tree, whether it’s real or fake, can be expensive, as well as time-consuming to put up and take down. Why have it out for only four or five short weeks? If you want to keep yours up longer, the Thanksgiving Christmas tree trend on social media is one you’ll want to try. It makes it acceptable to get that tree out of storage in early November, and, of course, it makes a really cute decoration.
A Thanksgiving Christmas tree is exactly what it sounds like — a Christmas tree that has been decorated for Thanksgiving. This usually means leaving off the red and green Santa ornaments and anything that looks too, well, Christmas-y. Instead, you’ll decorate the tree with Thanksgiving and autumn-themed ornaments, like fake colorful leaves, acorns, little scarecrows, maybe some turkeys, and some little mini pumpkins. It’s fun, it’s festive, and it’s a little different. And when Thanksgiving is over, all you have to do is swap out the decorations for the next holiday.
