One of the jobs I really dislike every year is decorating the Christmas tree. Putting up the decorations and taking them down. However when the job is done I like the result and the joy it gives.
One of the benefits of having an artificial tree is that I can start the process of decorating the tree in November. A little bit at a time. I can also strip the tree a bit at a time.

The job I hate is when I've forgotten/ not bothered to bring it to any of the dozens of recycling points near me and then, usually in February, I have to cut it up and get it into the brown bin. One year I cut up all the branches really small, piled them in the barbecue and set fire to them. The flames went about 3 metres in the air. T'was like the afterburned on a F16, frightened the bejesus out of me.

That would have frightened low flying aircraft...Purple :D
Artificial Christmas tree is for me and have been using it for years. I like decorating it at Christmas and even taking it all down afterwards. No bother then up in the attic for the next year and the next....

Don’t you think it’s a bit too cold in a February for a BBQ!
