IS SHE FIR REAL?

Savvy mum decorates her Christmas tree in just five minutes thanks to cling film trick, but not everyone’s a fan

A MUM has revealed how she decorates her Christmas tree in minutes with the help of cling film.

Jane Day saves hours of fetching, unpacking and arranging every December by sealing the tree, tinsel, lights and baubles in plastic.

A hilarious video shows Jane, 50, from Bristol, using a pair of scissors to carefully cut away the cling film.

All that is left to do is pull the tree back into its proper shape, plug in, and switch on.

The ultimate seasonal time-saver was filmed by Jane's son, Jack, who posted the clip on Twitter.

Jack, 20, also from Bristol, wrote: “As if my mum wraps up the Christmas trees every year so she doesn’t have to decorate them.”

Her son Jack shared a video of her removing the cling film on Twitter

Jack’s video has been viewed by almost 500,000 people with over 25,000 likes and nearly 200 comments.

The short clip shows an artificial Christmas tree wrapped in plastic that is already decorated with ribbons and white bobbles.

It then shows Jack’s mum cutting the plastic carefully with a pair of scissors.

A voice can be heard saying in the clip: “You are such a genius, aren't you? Make sure you don’t cut the ribbon”.
