Yes, water your Christmas tree is a must if not… look at this video.


If you have a natural Christmas tree, just add water every 3 days in order to keep it as live as much as possible and keep it moist. If so, the tree will take as much as 20 times less probability to lit in case of fire caused by a short of the Christmas lights.

Add sugar water into the tree stand.

With this intention (depending on the size of the tree still, for a medium size tree), 2 cups of sugar water must be added every other day. Check the water level every day.

Spray the whole tree with water. Precautions.

You can also spray water to the tree. Even more, precautions when spraying the tree; make sure the Christmas lights unplugged from the main outlet, use room temperature water, spray the tree once a day.

All in all, we want to keep the tree as moist as possible to prevent excessive amounts of needles from falling off and make the tree less likable to catch on fire.

More importantly, we should keep our Christmas trees lit while we can keep an eye on it. We would like the lights on all night throughout the holiday season, but even so, we don’t really need that.
