Is that the fire crackling? Nope, it's the Christmas tree!

We bought a Douglas fir on Saturday and tonight it has started making faint crackling sounds. Like Rice Krispies (tm). The tree is not on fire, it has plenty of water and it's not the lights making the sounds. What is it? Is the tree going to asplode? Or is it just a hive of insects that will take over my home once they're done with the tree? Please hope me!
