How to take photographs of Christmas trees and Christmas lights.

I almost never take photos, but I'd like to take a few this season for sentimental reasons. I can take photos of a Christmas tree (and have), but I am embarrassed to admit that I haven't the faintest clue how to take a photograph showing the tree covered in lights. The photos I take never show the lights. In fact, you can't even tell whether the lights are on or not. How can I get the lights to appear in the photo? The camera I'm using is an old A series Canon. I think around 5meg. [more inside]

How to relax a Christmas tree. It has been unwrapped now for two days and the limbs aren't relaxing much into a tree shape. It looks like it is preparing for re-entry rather than lights and decorations. What do we do? [more inside]

I want a Christmas tree, but I am moving overseas in the new year and DO NOT NEED MORE STUFF. What can I make that is a) festive, b) disposable and c) close to free? (I'd prefer not to contribute a huge pile o'plastic to Boxing Day landfill either)

How do I wrap an outdoor deciduous tree with Christmas lights safely?

I am looking to wrap a 12' dogwood's trunk and branches to get an effect similar to this. But if a max of 3 strands of 100 mini lights connected end to end is the recommendation for safety, how would I configure it? Thanks, Heather

Buying Christmas Trees in Boston

Where can I buy a Christmas tree in Boston? I moved to Boston in August and live in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood. In every other city I've lived in, there were Christmas Tree stands all over the place. So far, I've seen none. I want to buy a live tree, but where do I go? So far, all I've seen are the cut-your-own places far out of town. Any ideas?
