Are you aware of the Home Depot Christmas tree that’s gone viral? If not, you might just be living under a rock (or just really good at avoiding social media!). In the past few days, TikTok has been ablaze with videos of users setting up their beloved Grand Duchess Balsam Fir Christmas trees from Home Depot. So much so that the hashtag #viralchristmastree has garnered more than 70 million views on the popular social media app. So what’s all the fuss about?

According to TikTok fans, this 7.5 foot artificial Christmas tree is unique because it’s pre-lit with more than 5,000 colour-changing LED lights that are controlled by a remote control. It also features over 3,000 branch tips, which give it a thick foliage look, and memory wire branch tips so it maintains its shape after coming out of storage.

The result is pretty spectacular if you’re into bold and bright Christmas decor. If 5,000 shiny lights seems like a bit much in terms of LEDs in your living room, you’re also not alone. Some buyers have noted how the lights are too bright and how they’re disappointed the tree doesn’t come with a dimmer to adjust the brightness. The price is also pretty as this tree will set you back a whopping $998. Though the tree is currently out of stock online, you can check your nearby stores and sign up for a re-stock notification.

If your little ones are fans of the infamous Grinch-themed book by Dr. Seuss, then they’ll go nuts for this playful tree option. While the price is slightly steep, it’s still much cheaper than the viral Home Depot Christmas tree and it’s a great choice for smaller spaces.

A White Pre-lit Christmas Tree

White Christmas trees are currently all the rage on Pinterest and this one is extra special as it comes pre-lit, so you don’t have to worry about untangling lights. White Christmas trees are perfect for those who already have a neutral colour scheme in their homes that they don’t want to stray from.

If you’ve got young children and are also tight on space, this LEGO option is a great pick. Your kids will get to help with building it and seeing their faces once it’s complete will put a smile on everyone’s face. Plus, LEGO doesn’t need to be put away after the holidays so you can enjoy this tree all year long.
