Re: s/o Christmas tree. Live or fake

Fake. I just can't justify cutting down a perfectly good tree for 4 weeks of pleasure. We spent big money on our fake tree and it looks very nice. We've had it for several years and it shows no signs of dying yet. So since we now don't have as much expendable income as we used to have pre-kids it is nice to not have the expense of a tree every year as well.

Growing up we had a very fake looking fake tree and dh had live trees. But dh didn't want to deal with the hassle of caring for a live tree anymore so gladly went fake when we got married.

Fake. Historically DH would always get laid off right before christmas so we didn't have money to get a real tree. Now I'm just used to the fake tree. We upgraded to a prelit hinged tree a few years ago since the one thing I couldn't stand was how long it took for the tree to go up. Now it's in three peices, so it takes no time at all until I can let DD1 help with the ornaments.

Fake. My mom, brother, and I are allergic. I'm fine visiting others houses, but living in the house with one makes me miserable.

Fake- always did fake until last year and the tree died a week before Christmas and left needles everywhere

Also a fake tree will be way easier with a curious 18 mth old!
