Every year, real Christmas trees are sold in Satwa, just a few blocks away from Iranian hospital. Prices are negotiable so it is worth haggling for the best price.

Some people prefer to decorate using real Christmas trees because of the nice scent they exuberate. The smell of fresh pine needles and the natural woody must of a real tree might be the most magical, too.

And for many people who celebrate Christmas, a real Christmas tree is a festive symbol of family, tradition, and nostalgia, and is a seasonal staple.
