Making Mealtime Meaningful: See How We’re Giving Back with the New 12 Tomatoes Cares Program →

Christmas trees are so beautiful when they are lit up, aren’t they? The joy and magic that they provide are hard to come by during the rest of the year. Of course, most of us will decide to take the tree down once the holiday season has come and gone, but there seem to be many people who are leaving them up to brighten up other holidays as well.

First of all, there are no rules that govern this aspect of the proceedings. You can leave your tree up for as long as you want, after all, it’s not like there’s a Christmas Police that will show up at your house. And as people are demonstrating, Christmas Trees can be dressed up for more than just for Christmas.

In fact, some people are decorating their Christmas Trees for Easter and sharing the trees on Instagram!

Easter is the perfect time for a holiday tree, if you really stop to think about it. Instead of using Santa Claus or his reindeer to decorate the tree, you can grab an Easter bunny and some pastel ribbons. Easter eggs and various other trinkets can also be used.

Anyone who is in need of “inspo” is more than welcome to head to Instagram. Once we got a chance to take a closer look at these trees, we had so many new and interesting ideas. We’re not going to lie to you, the idea of using trees to celebrate more holidays is very appealing. If you are someone who has a fake tree in your home, you are especially in luck.

You can simply decorate the tree that you already have up and all is well. No one can accuse you of being lazy, you’re just being festive.

Holidays like this one are always fun because they are an excuse to eat candy and spend time with loved ones. What better way to make the occasion even more festive? It is high time that we all started getting more usage out of our Christmas trees anyway!
