I use an artificial tree. I have used one for many years. I have a 9 foot pre lit tree that I am looking to get rid of because I bought a smaller one.

I do the artifial tree.  I like the real tree, but just cannot stand on the clean up afterwards and besides, as long as the tree is pretty and smells good that's what it's about. :)

I sure did enjoy the real pine Christmas trees when I was a child. The smell of pine trees up north is awesome! Now I'm down to a 4 foot artificial one. I would like to get a white artificial one because my ornaments show up better than on the dark green one. :angel11:

Every Christmas, since I've been in NY with my family for the past years, they always purchase artificial trees.

My family always gets a live tree every year. It's kinda like a tradition. I guess it's the fun in it. Going out and picking the best looking tree we can. Growing up I had 1 brother and 1 sister and I'm the middle child. I can remember arguing about which tree to get. We would all 3 have to agree on 1 tree to get before my parents would get. One year all 5 of us, my dad, mom, brother, sister, and me all went and chopped down a tree ourselves. I was about 10 years old and I can remember how cool I thought it was that we had a tree from the mountains in our living room. Great memories.

I use a fake tree. I cannot justify to myself the cost of getting a real tree every year.
Additionally I have cats and the needles can be toxic to them.
Other pros include not having to get the tree home, get it in the house and get it out of the house afterwards.
Personally I find it sad to watch the tree slowly die over the holidays.

I use a fake, pre lit tree.
Growing up we always had real trees.
I remember what a pain it was once I was older, but as a kid, it was great!

we use an artificial one. i see no reason to kill a tree each year just so i can decorate it. we have a small blue tree that is really pretty when lit up.
