Sure it might not have that piney scent or be 100% fulfilling, but it won't leave you frustrated from having to clean up after it.

4. Maybe you're ready to look for the biggest, freshest that's out there?

5. Some people are already posting perfect pics on Instagram, and you’re left feeling the pressure of not having found the one yet...

Just keep reminding yourself that you'll get it when you're ready.

6. ...and it's like, where are you even gonna go to find this thing???

But once you do, you really want to show it off to your family and friends.

11. Your pet will probably like your tree more than it likes you.

Which is fine — just don't let them spend too much time together.

12. Things will be SO great for a few weeks.
