The perfect artificial Christmas tree would have two main qualities - it would be pre-lit, and it would be squoosh-proof.
However, right now, I have an artificial tree that is pretty well squooshed, and almost none of the pre-lit lights are working. Therefore, I am spending my morning fluffing each branch, after which I will string lights on my pre-lit tree.
Oh, well. It will be gorgeous when it's done. Sigh.
