My family has always used an artificial tree because it's cleaner and you don't have to buy a new one every year. It was a very nice tree and we all enjoyed it :)
 Go green!

If you can find a nice artificial one then they can be nice but nothing comes close to a real tree. It's even better to get one with the roots so you can plant it when Christmas is over and not waste the tree.

I like real trees and my father and mother and siblings used to go out in the woods and cut down a tree every year when I was young but I have allergies and my husband is disabled and has breathing problems so we have a fake tree and things are such that we don't even get that put up every year so............................... I guess it doesn't much matter, too hard for us to deal with so unless grown sons do to please me, it doesn't get done.  But I love the whole spirit and idea of Christmas, not a bah humbug just have physical problems.  :heart:

I usually have a fake tree just because it is more convenient.

The last few years I opted not to put up a tree at all.   No one really sees it
but me and my boyfriend and I have two kittens and a puppy that have just
turned 2 years old.

Not into the puppy eating the ornaments and knocking it down.   He is a bull in a china shop.

I live in Oregon and it's the real deal every year. My wife would never have it any other way. We go cut our own from an old guy in his 90's and wouldn't miss that annual visit for anything, although he's getting to the point we wonder if he will be there each year. As long as he is, he will have at least one customer in us.

Artificial tree... I grew up with always having one, so that's just what I do too.

I prefer a live tree over a  fake tree.  When I was growing up my father and I had a tradition that we always did for christmas every year. We would go out and hunt for the perfect tree to cut down and bring back home to be decorated. After we would get the tree we sought after, we we look for possible candidates for the following year. It was a tradition that he and I still try to do each year even though we are seperated by miles. However, I have continued the tradition with my children.  It was also some good memories of parent child time. Plus, I love the smell of fresh trees rather than the fake one.
