Re: s/o Christmas tree. Live or fake

Oh. I guess maybe I should add that for us a real tree is WAY cheaper than fake. We live on 30 acres with TONS of trees. I didn't really consider the cost of buying a real tree, cause for us, there is none.

Re: s/o Christmas tree. Live or fake

We have a fake because our apartment complex we lived in before last year didn't allow live. I can't wait to get a live one again.

Yeah everyone loves a poll!

I put fake, but growing up we always had a real tree.

I love the smell of a real tree and they are so pretty, but they are so expensive and it's sorta depressing watching it die.

If it were up to my dh we wouldnt even HAVE ANY tree.
My dad bought us a fake one from walmart so at least we have something.
My dh is such a party pooper!

Growing up, the tree was always fake. So when I moved in with my SO, our first Christmas I wanted a live tree. And now will never go back to fake! I love the way it makes my house smell and I don't mind vacuuming up the needles.

Re: s/o Christmas tree. Live or fake

Real. I love the smell and the adventure of finding one. It's only $5 to get a permit to cut one in our national forrest. The kids love tromping through the snow to find the perfect tree. Some years it is like the National Lampoons movie "Christmas Vacation" where everyone gets cold, tired and whiny, but once we get home and have a cup of hot chocolate we talk bout how much fun it was getting the tree. Then the next adventure is trying to fit the tree in the house because we always cut one that is too big. Sometimes we have a trapezoid tree because we had to cut the top off in order to keep the nice full branches at the bottom. It aways turns out beautiful though!
