The Great Debate: Artificial vs. Real

While some folks swear that Christmas is not complete without a real Christmas tree, artificial trees have a few key benefits: zero maintenance, cost efficiency, and a better match for anyone with allergies. Artificial trees won’t give off the same classic pine scent in your home, but candles and scented tree ornaments will do the trick. Real trees may require some trimming to fit your space, as well as a tree stand that will hold water. Fresh cut trees are available at some Halifax & Dartmouth KENT locations, and artificial trees are widely available in store and online.

No matter which tree you choose, you can create some holiday magic with fun decorations. Check your local KENT for real or artificial trees to bring home and start your holiday season off with old & new traditions. Make a list, check it twice, and find all the holiday gear you’re looking for at KENT.
