So I know there is this minor thing called a presidential election going on in the US today, but I thought the more pressing issue of CHRISTMAS coming deserved some attention. So, which is it, a real tree or fake Christmas tree at your house?
We always had fake because my sister was allergic to the real ones. DH grew up with real ones they went and cut themselves. I personally love not having to water, deal with pollen and falling leaves. We currently have a fake tree we will be putting up but DH is convinced in the future we need to go get real ones.

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 DH sometime.

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.
