When I was younger I loved to get real or even living trees.  Now it's too much hassle, kids grown and just my wife and I.  I do whatever she insists on.  She still loves to decorate for xmas, and she's good at it.

Still getting the fresh tree for me.  Just can't get used to those fake trees in the stores - just doesn't feel like a Christmas tree to me unless I'm scrubbing sap from my hands and arms for a week.   ;D

I know my parents went the fake tree route several years ago and spray the tree with the "spruce" scent - but that doesn't come close to the real thing to me.  Plus I found having the real tree increases the humidity in my house which is fantastic because it gets so dry with the heat running in winter.

We used to always do the live tree, now that the kids are gone, I prefer to do the artificial tree, they look so real now and with the scented candles you think it is real, but not the mess of a real tree.

It's just me and I don't stay home for Christmas so I don't put up a tree anymore, I just put decorations around the house. :wave: :wave:

I grew up using fake trees and still do that now.  I would like to try having a real one at some point, though.

We've always had the same artificial tree. I like artificial trees, they come in different colors. I like those little pink ones and my Peanuts tree.

Don't really do Christmas in my house because my ex gets my daughter. But we have a small fake tree that we put up in November. It's easy and leave the lights on, so little set up/take down.

Done it both ways over the years.  Probably going with artificial again this year.

I don't have a Christmas tree at my house because I don't have the room. However, I always go to my parents house for the holidays and we have always had live Christmas trees.
My father's favorite holiday was Christmas. He loved decorating the tree and smell of fresh balsam and pine

We have a very nice artificial tree.

When the kids were little we went to the tree farm and chopped down our own tree.  That was fun!

We did the same thing. When the kids were little, we got a real tree. Now we have a fiber optic tree that is neat. When I was a kid, it was always an artifical tree, always wanted the real thing.
