We actually have a Christmas tree (a fake one, I don’t understand cutting real trees for decoration, but that’s another topic); but never put it up because it’s too much trouble and we usually celebrate Christmas out of our house. But we always said we’d start putting it up once we have children, so this year, with our brand new baby, we’ll put up the Christmas tree for the first time! (and host Christmas dinners with family and friends because I’ll be recovering from delivery and would rather be home than go out all the time).

We celebrated our first Christmas in our apartment last year, no engagement (till that morning anywat), no babies, but definitely a tree! Fiance and I are unsure about kids though, so if we had waited for a baby we might never have gotten one.

WHAT? No way am I depriving myself of a tree for years while we wait on a baby. Ours is only like 5 feet tall but thats just because we don’t have the space for a tall tree yet.

I have a small tree (about 3 feet) because I was living in apartments for a few years, but I always put it up, even when I wasn’t in a relationship! I love decorating for the holiday!

No, my Darling Husband is a big Christmas guy. He puts it up every year. It definitely will be a little bit more special when we have kids though.

We just purchased our first tree for our first married Christmas πŸ™‚ There was no way I could hold out for a baby!

Nope! We bought a Christmas tree the first Christmas we were together in our home.

No way!  I didn’t buy one last year and I missed it soooo much!  I am definitely getting a tree this year and we won’t have any babies for a few more years.

We waited until we bought a house to get a Christmas tree, but I always had a little potted fir tree in our apartment. No way was I going to wait for a baby! πŸ˜€

Nonsense I tell, the tree is for meeeee!

I bought one the first year I got my first place. I have a pre-lit fake one because its so much easier.

God no, it’s one of my favorite parts of Christmas! We bought a small tree last year because we are living in an apartment (3-4 feet or so) but just enough to use all my ornaments and satisfy my Christmas crazy πŸ™‚

Plus, every year we buy each other an ornament about the previous year (like last year was “our first married christmas”, the year before his was “engaged christmas” while mine was “cross-country road trip”), and it would make me sad not to display them for ourselves every year.
