    Fake, three pieces, pre-lit. It takes 5 minutes to put up and I love it so.

    I personally rather do real, love the smell of pine trees. Growing up we did a combo of both. Some years fake some years real. Right now we have a fake tree and that poor thing is on it’s last legs. I would love to do a real tree here with Darling Husband sometime.

    Two fake trees. I’ve had them for years and they still look great.

    We just have a little two-footer this year. Both our families always had fake trees!

    We have a fake tree for a number of reasons. We’ll continue to have one because they can be used over and over again. They don’t present the fire danger of a real tree and you don’t find pine needled in the heat vent five months after Christmas. I’m also pretty uncomfortable with the number of trees cut down each year for trees. I know they come from farms and the trees are constantly being planted, but it is unsettling for me to know that a tree was cut down for the sole purpose of being a temporary decoration.

    We do usually buy a few cedar branch swags to decorate with and get that nice pine smell.

    Fake!  Our family’s allergies got worse every year with the real trees and the last year we had a real one it was infested with mites.  The real ones can also be a fire hazard.

    Fake! I collect expensive Christmas ornaments and most are too heavy for real trees. I also like my 9 ft tree. I’d feel bad cutting down a live 9 foot tree just so I could put it in my hosue.

    We will never ever ever ever get a fake tree. I love the real ones too much and so does my husband!

    Fake!  They’s so easy and there’s no upkeep.  I’ll never go back to a real one!

    Real! I love the smell and the soft bristles of the Douglas Fir.
