By now, most people would have gotten the Christmas tree out, dusted it off, and spent a quiet Sunday afternoon decorating it. After all, decorating the tree is one of the most important parts of Christmas.
You can tell a lot about a person’s personality by the way they choose to decorate their Christmas tree.
Do any of these sound familiar?
Artificial or real
Are you a traditionalist or do you prefer the ease of an artificial tree?
If you like real trees you probably like the outdoors. You enjoy creating an ambiance that invokes smell as well as sight. Traditionalists feel that seeking out the perfect tree, tying it to the roof of the car and then dragging it into the house is all part of the fun.
If you like artificial trees, you like an investment that lasts. You want something pretty, but don’t want to make a lot of fuss. Artificial tree owners can also be perfectionists. They don’t like to deal with gaps in the branches or the dropping needles of a real tree.
Perfect symmetry or organised chaos
Do you like the perfectly organised look or the random eclectic look?
If you’re someone who decorates their Christmas tree with perfect symmetry and care, you’re likely to be a stickler for perfect presentation in other areas of your life too.
You might be a person who when purchasing the tree, spends great lengths of time examining each branch to ensure that it’s sturdy and lush. When it comes to decorating, you simply must place each ornament exactly as you want it or all hell will break loose.
On the other hand, perhaps you don’t care for the perfectly decorated Christmas tree and instead prefer the more eclectic look. You don’t mind if the ornaments don’t match. Each one is different, each one is special. The decoration of an eclectic tree is often a group effort. Some will hang the ornaments, others will hang the garland – it’s the perfect opportunity for a bit of family fun.
White lights or multi-colored lights
If you prefer to decorate your tree using just white lights, you’re likely to be a perfectionist. You might be the type of person who asks guests to remove their shoes as you like to keep the house tidy and in check.
On the other hand, if you like multicolored lights you might just be an extrovert. You’re the kind of person who’s fun and outspoken; someone who feels that the holidays are one big party and everyone’s invited.
