To keep your Christmas Tree from drying out...use this simple recipe:
Mix 2 cups of Bourbon Whiskey and 1 gallon of water in a milk jug (or whatever).
Fill the reservoir with this solution and make sure to add to it every day so the reservoir never gets completely dry.
Use the cheapest bourbon you can buy...save your money for the good stuff to actually 'enjoy' watching the tree with...the tree doesn't care how cheap the bourbon is. I usually by a fifth for about 8 dollars. That is all you need.
The tree will stay as fresh as the day you bought it...long after Christmas is over. In fact...I always burn ours in the middle of the backyard, but I have to wait until May before it starts to dry out. Seriously!
So...enjoy that Christmas Tree...remember...a drunk tree is a happy fresh tree!
You are welcome!
