Christmas Tree Alternatives For People Who Can’t Have Them (And Scrooges Who Hate the Mess and Happiness)

Nothing screams Christmas louder than a dead tree you’ve snagged from a Target parking lot, tied to the roof of your car, and dragged into your living room to be smothered with lights and tinsel. But for those of us who merely want to whisper Christmas or shun it all together in gloomy silence, what are our options? Ideally, if you’re asked to host this year, you can make a statement with a non-traditional take on the typical tree. Letting your family know once and for all that you’re still completely devoid of cheer, joy, and holiday spirit (but not a sense of humor). Do the holidays your way, with one of these outstanding Christmas tree alternatives.
