Oh boy- something else to worry about – real Christmas trees.

Years ago I had a tick infestation in my house from a REAL tree.  Not good.  I now do all fake trees.

For those with allergies though – there is something called ‘Christmas Tree Syndrome’

The average real tree has 53 different types of mold on it.

Here are the symptoms of Christmas Tree Syndrome:

Coughing, wheezing, lethargy and insomnia. Other symptoms include fatigue, chest pains, sinus congestion, itchy nose and shortness of breath.

The only cure:  FAKE tree.

Sorry real tree lovers.

Merry Christmas!
